Description Marc-Andre Lureau 2014-11-05 17:13:03 UTC
Forward ssh keys to the remote VM. It would be \o/ Thanks to SSH_AUTH_SOCK, it is possible to forward your credentials. The protocol is described in http://api.libssh.org/rfc/PROTOCOL.agent, so a new channel may just forward all this to the client, which may in turn implement an agent or forward it to an existing agent?

A prototype has been done, but the integration with the DE is still far away to be ready. Further discussions about the DE integration can be followed here: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome-keyring-list/2015-September/msg00000.html Also, this is one suggestion to solve this problem: 13:21 < fidencio> elmarco: one option would be to have something like ssh-add --pipe /path/to/another_agent 13:22 < fidencio> so, it would be expanding the ssh-agent protocol and having a DE agnostic solution 13:22 < fidencio> it could be implemented in the gnome-keyring and in the openssh ... 13:22 < fidencio> elmarco: does it still sound bad to you? Links for further discussions and patches for libssh will be added here later.
