NAME

       pam_ssh_add - PAM module to auto load ssh keys into an agent

DESCRIPTION

       pam_ssh_add provides authentication and session modules that allow users to start their
       session with a running ssh-agent with as many ssh keys loaded as possible.

       If used, the authentication module simply stores the authentication token for later use by
       the session module. Because this module performs no actual authentication it returns
       PAM_CRED_INSUFFICIENT on success and should always be accompanied by an actual
       authentication module in your pam configuration.

       By default the session module will start a new ssh-agent and run ssh-add, loading any keys
       that exist in the default path for the newly logged in user. If any keys prompt for a
       password, and a authenication token was successfully stored, that token will be provided
       as the password.

OPTIONS

       debug
           This option will turn on debug logging to syslog.

EXAMPLES

                   auth     required  pam_unix.so
                   auth     optional  pam_ssh_add.so
                   session  optional  pam_ssh_add.so
