ZendService\Amazon\Ec2: Keypairs

Keypairs are used to access instances.

create returns an array which contains the keyName, keyFingerprint and keyMaterial.

$ec2_kp = new ZendService\Amazon\Ec2\Keypair('aws_key','aws_secret_key');
$return = $ec2_kp->create('my-new-key');

Deleting an Amazon Keypair

delete, will delete the key pair. This will only prevent it from being used with new instances. Instances currently running with the keypair will still allow you to access them.

delete returns boolean TRUE or FALSE
