Don't expose SSH Keys in the web interface

That way i could be sure no one can steal my SSH keys even if he gets into my Digital Ocean account.

Github and Heroku for example follow the same policy with SSH keys.

    The SSH key that you add to the control panel is your public key and is meant to be distributed.

    Your private key is stored on our computer or other server and you should never share that anywhere so there is no issue displaying the public key as it is the private key that should never be shared.
