SSHKeychain0.8.2

24 August 2007

GUI for ssh-agent/ssh-add.

Overview

SSHKeychain is a GUI front-end for ssh-agent and ssh-add on Mac OS X. Features include: Can remove all keys from the agent after sleep or after a minimum period of sleep (especially useful for notebooks). Can remove all keys from the agent when a Screensaver is detected. Can remove all keys from the agent when the Apple keychain is locked. Can add keys to the agent whenever the Apple keychain is unlocked. Can add keys to the agent whenever ssh is trying to use the agent with no keys on the chain. Can display itself in the StatusBar, Dock, or both. You can store the passphrases for your private keys in the Apple Keychain. Can add the necessary variables to the global environment (~/.MacOSX/environment.plist), so you can use SSHKeychain with all your programs (Terminal, Project Builder, etc). You can also edit the global environment from within the Preferences. You can lock/unlock the Apple keychain from a menu item. Works seamless with the commandline tools. (i.e. tracks activity coming from the commandline tools, and updates it's UI.) Works with requests coming over the network (through AgentForwarding). Can generate new keypairs. Tunnel support

I'd like SSHKeychain to not display itself at all in the dock or menu bar. This worked fine in 0.8.1 by setting it to Dock-only and setting LSUIElement to 1 in the Info.plist. However, in 0.8.2, LSUIElement reverts to 0 and the dock icon shows up anyways. Locking the Info.plist causes the app to quit after a few seconds. Does anyone know how I might fully hide SSHKeychain without mucking with the source? (I have to add, this is one of the most useful pieces of MacOS freeware out there!)

My installer says the install had problems and suggests that the install failed. The install looked like it worked though.

Great app, but unfortunately with the leatest 10.6 security update it is causing system freezes.

Put this into ~/.bash_profile if using the bash shell in Tiger: SSHAGENT=/usr/bin/ssh-agent SSHAGENTARGS="-s" if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" -a -x "$SSHAGENT" ]; then eval `$SSHAGENT $SSHAGENTARGS` trap "kill $SSH_AGENT_PID" 0 fi Then start a new shell and type: ssh-add You are prompted for the password of your ssh-keys. See: http://mah.everybody.org/docs/ssh for further information.

Had to drop back to 0.6.1. 0.7 crashes on startup. 0.7.1 displays blank panes on preferences. Are you doing something silly like using webkit for the preferences?

Crashes randomly. Interferes with screen saver / screen lock. (Makes it impossible to unlock the screen after screen saver kicks in and interferes with outside ssh connections.) The crashes happened before 0.7, too. The login interference is new.

This SSH agent is one of the most useful agents I have ever used. Due to its ability to manage global environment variables, each new shell created may be spawned with the corrent environment variables pointing to the agent. Another incredibly useful option is the integration with the apple keychain. This application should be on any OSX user's "must have" list.

Excellent! I have dozens of SSH keys on my keychain and managing them has become a *real* pain. This program makes key management easy, has never crashed, and has never corrupted any of my keys. I love this program, and would *gladly* pay for it. Please, keep up the excellent work!
