This one command is so hard to track down every 3 years when I need it. So many posts incorrectly insist the private key is in PEM format already. In truth, it depends on how the key pair was created (openssl vs ssh-keygen).
# NOTE: this updates the file in place, do you have a backup?
ssh-keygen -p -m PEM -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa
