    I am having problems with JSCH using keys generated from putty.
    Can anyone help me regarding what all key generation tools can i use to generate keys that work fine with JSCH.

      JSCH doesn't work with Putty format SSH keys. You can use OpenSSH or Jsch to generate a key that will work, or you can use PuttyGen to export an existing key in an OpenSSH format.

      PuttyGen > Conversions > Export OpenSSH key
