    When one create a Linux VM, one can log into VM using a certificate (aka, key-pair: public and private keys). The key-pair can be generated at user's local machine using "Git Batch":

    openssl.exe req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout my_private_key.key -out my_public_certificate.pem

    The file "my_public_certificate.pem" is sent to Azure when the VM is created, and file "my_private_key.key" is saved into local user machine (with a password).

    I have the following question:

    Can Azure administrators log into the user VM without file "my_private_key.key"?
