NAME

     kwalletaskpass β€” kwallet-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH

SYNOPSIS

     kwalletaskpass [options] label

DESCRIPTION

     kwalletaskpass is a kwallet- and pinentry-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH.  It
     is intended to be called from the ssh-add(1) program and not invoked directly.

     If a passphrase is requested, kwalletaskpass works by first looking up the passphrase in the
     KWallet by means of kwalletcli(1); using it if found, then calling kwalletcli_getpin(1) to
     interactively retrieve an answer from the user via pinentry otherwise.  If the user
     specifies a passphrase, kwalletcli_getpin(1) is run again to ask if the passphrase should be
     stored in the KWallet.  Negative answers will be stored in the KWallet to avoid being asked
     each time.  kwalletaskpass uses the KWallet folders kwalletaskpass and
     kwalletaskpass-blacklist with matching entry names.

     If anything other than a key passphrase is requested, it is merely relayed to
     kwalletcli_getpin(1).  Some requests are known to require a boolean answer and are relayed
     using the boolean query flag; all others are relayed using a PIN query.  ssh(1) accepts
     either the literal word β€œyes” (case-insensitively matched) or an empty answer (both only
     when using the OK button) as confirmation.

     There are currently no options.

RETURN VALUES

     kwalletaskpass exits 0 on success, 1 if the user cancelled the dialogue, or >1 if an error
     occurred.

ENVIRONMENT

     DISPLAY   The X11 display to use for child processes.  If this is unset or empty, kwalletcli
               will not be called.

     PINENTRY  The pinentry program to use.  The default is inherited from kwalletcli_getpin(1).

AUTHORS

     kwalletaskpass was written by mirabilos <m@mirbsd.org> mostly for tarent solutions GmbH.
     The idea came from an askpass.C file found somewhere on the 'net, with no author
     information.  Since it was licenced less freely, this is a rewrite from scratch; modular and
     with more functionality, too.
