My my (CentOS 5.5) man ssy-keygen:
Contains the protocol version 1 RSA public key for authentica-
tion. The contents of this file should be added to
~/.ssh/authorized_keys on all machines where the user wishes to
log in using RSA authentication. There is no need to keep the
contents of this file secret.
identity.pub is *OpenSSH V1* public key file. How old is the ubuntu
system? Is OpenSSH V1 or V2 installed? The V1 RSA protocol is old
available for older systems...
