1Password changed my private key upon import

Community Member

I am importing a ed25519 SSH key I generated on my Mac via CLI ages ago. I imported the key from file and input the keys password. 1Password created the new SSH key record. The public_key matches my public key, however my private key is different.

One thing I noticed is that the header of my private key file is -----BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY----- while the header of the private key in 1Password is -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----.

I tested connecting to some servers over SSH using the key in 1Password, however it does not work to connect to my SSH servers.

So did 1Password recode my key somehow away from OpenSSH?
