when you can't generate ssh key in powershell, because the -N option (Passphrase) requires an argument.
the same works in cmd.. without error....

    Can't you just pass "" after it?

    @ethernetzero works with CMD, not with powershell.
    that's the weird thing.
    ugly workaround, to ensure it works: cmd /c ssh-keygen blabla -N ""
    at least i have to run it only ad-hoc only

    @wersooth Wow, so PowerShell not only requires that the argument is passed, but it also requires it to not even be empty. What a joke.

    Remember, kids: Powershell's only good for force-uninstalling Cortana.
