Some SSH host keys have changed on the Panix shell hosts.

If you are using SSH to connect with either of the following names, you
are affected by this change:

shell.panix.com
panix.panix.com

Note that SSH to any of the following names are NOT affected by this
change. You may need to use one of these until you can make the required
changes to your SSH known_hosts file.

panix1.panix.com
panix2.panix.com
panix3.panix.com

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Until you update your SSH known_hosts file, ssh will issue a big warning
similar to this:

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
[and many more lines]

You need to update your SSH known_hosts file in order to connect.

The new keys are located at:

https://config.panix.com/vault/sshdata/ssh.ed25519
https://config.panix.com/vault/sshdata/ssh.rsa
