SSH keys are pointless and no more secure than password. Change my mind.

Not having to type a password is pretty nice since on a cold day I mess up typing it the first few times.

You have to formulate an argument before you can ask for a counter-argument.

SSH keys can be stored offline in HSMs and accessed with hardware PINs, passwords cannot.

SSH keys can be protected with a password, providing a second factor of auth (something you have + something you know), therefore SSH keys are more secure.

SSH keys don't train you to keep re-entering your password, therefore SSH keys are more secure.

You're objectively wrong.

Not that password is super insecure if the password is good, but key exchange is fucking great. Allows you to get the most out of SSH too.
