SSH Agent X for Mac1.1

09 May 2005

Start SSH and generate identities.

What is SSH Agent X for Mac

SSH Agent is a graphical front-end to some of the OpenSSH tools included with Mac OS X. Specifically, it allows you to start an ssh-agent, generate identities, and add identities to an agent.

What's new in SSH Agent X

Version 1.1:

Main changes:

  • Conceptually, SSH Agent has changed from a window on the ssh-agent process to a ssh identity manager. This has the following consequences:
  • ssh identities are no longer treated as documents. Instead, SSH Agent's main window is a view on the identities in your .ssh directory.
  • Instead of adding identities to the agent, the interface let's you activate identities. Identities can be flagged as Default, and the preferences lets you add the Default identities when the application is launched.
  • There is an Agent Inspector which shows the details of the ssh-agent process. (It also allows you to detach the application from the process, allowing faceless operation.)
Other changes:
  • Different preferences format. If you're only trying out 1.1 make sure you backup your nl.uu.phil.* preferences.
  • Eye candy: An animated bubble showing the number of active identities and more beautiful icons. (Thanks Gerti!)
Missing, incomplete, or broken:
  • The keychain interaction might be broken.
  • The version checking code is incomplete.
  • No documentation, except this page.
  • No source package yet.
  • No internationalization.

It does exactly what I want. It manages multiple keys in a table, allowing them to be easily added and removed one by one. A truly wonderful interface onto a truly powerful tool.

Version: 1.0.3
By linking one of the most powerfull authentication infrastructures for UNIX hosts to the Mac OS X system, SSH Agent X 1.0.3 fills a gap in OS X's UNIX integration. A must-have package for anyone using ssh. It runs quietly in the background and dosen't cause trouble, which is exactly what I need.
