While I haven’t personally used Bitvise, I was able to find the following documentation that can walk you through generating an authentication key-pair, exporting the public key to your Linode, and configuring key authentication in Bitvise:

You may benefit from reviewing these additional resources as well:

If you’d like to look into some other ways to harden SSH access and secure your server, this guide may also be of use to you:

Should you ever get locked out of your Linode after modifying your SSH configuration, keep in mind that you can always access your Linode using our out-of-band console Lish. We also have an excellent guide on troubleshooting SSH if you ever run into issues when attempting to access your Linode over SSH.

Hope this helps! :)
