monkeysphere - ssh authentication framework using OpenPGP Web of Trust
MonkeySphere is a framework to leverage the OpenPGP Web of Trust for
ssh authentication. OpenPGP keys are tracked via GnuPG, and added to
the authorized_keys and known_hosts files used by ssh for connection
FIXME: describe identity certifier concept
During known_host and authorized_keys updates, the monkeysphere
commands work from a set of user IDs to determine acceptable keys for
ssh authentication. OpenPGP keys are considered acceptable if the
following criteria are met:
The key must have the "authentication" ("a") usage flag set.
The key itself must be valid, i.e. it must be well-formed, not
expired, and not revoked.
The relevant user ID must be signed by a trusted identity
The OpenPGP keys for hosts have associated user IDs that use the ssh
URI specification for the host, i.e. "ssh://host.full.domain[:port]".
