I just generated an ssh key and saw this:

+--[ RSA 2048]----+
|                 |
|                 |
|                 |
| o =             |
|+ X E   S        |
|.* B o .         |
|  + * o          |
|  .o *           |
| ..oo.+          |
+-----------------+

to this paper -
- but while that's interesting (it goes into quite some detail about
random art, and the need for structure), it doesn't appear to explain
exactly the algorithm used for the image above.

The nearest I can find to an explanation is the quoted block of text
