Hi,
to execute validation I set AcceptAllHostKeys to false and added a handler method to the HostKeyEventHandler.
Now I get the hostkey by the HostKeyEventArgs as a byte array. The key to compare has the format "ssh-rsa 2048 df+r....".
How can I compare those Keys? I tried several conversions but got no match at all.

The answer to this depends on what format your key has been stored in, unfortunately I'm not sure which format starts with ssh-rsa 2048.

For example, public keys generated by OpenSsh's ssh-keygen utility have the format of:
ssh-rsa base64-encoded-key key-originator

To compare, one would need to decode the base 64 encoded portion and do a byte comparison against e.HostKey.

If you're absolutely sure that your key file only contains the public key for your server you can send it in to support@dart.com and we will be happy to help you resolve the issue.
