The SSH public host key, as a string (required if state=present, optional when state=absent, in which case all keys for the host are removed). The key must be in the right format for ssh (see sshd(8), section "SSH_KNOWN_HOSTS FILE FORMAT").
Specifically, the key should not match the format that is found in an SSH pubkey file, but should rather have the hostname prepended to a line that includes the pubkey, the same way that it would appear in the known_hosts file. The value prepended to the line must also match the value of the name parameter.
Should be of format `<hostname[,IP]> ssh-rsa <pubkey>`
