SSH Private Key Security

I've found that if a private key file is placed in the default directory (.../bin) a flow by any useer would be able to read the file thus compromising security. Is there a more secure way to locate the file such that it can only be read by users with certain permissions?

What if you make use of a specific (dedicated) RAS to handle the tasks that require access to the private key files?!

The private keys could be stored in location where the RAS will have access to while users access to that machine will be limited and access to the private keys folder as well.
