OpenSSH Agents

I want to know how more about key management, so far I have done authorized keys between my server and my client. However I have heard about SSH agents which is another way of authentication. Can anyone give me a rundown on the different authentications that OpenSSH can have.

Also Gnome seems to have some SSH utilities like openssh-askpass-gnome, gnome-sshman, clusterssh, scanssh and sshfs. Although the latest is more of a fuse thing than ssh in itself.

This is a draft, but the text is complete:

It covers both setting up the SSH service, and using agents etc. on the client.


dsa, openssh, rsa
