Add canister access control for another computer

When creating a canister, one gets a default identity that becomes the owner of the canister.
What if my computer breaks or I want to manage the canister from another computer?

How do I copy the ‘default’ identity so that it is useable elsewhere?

You can find the all your dfx identities under the ~/.config/dfx/identity directory. The private key .pem files are stored here. (It would be wise to back this up.)

Thanks @Ori This is just what I was looking for and assumed it was somewhere deeper :laughing:
