ssh-agent-cmd - Script for Windows Command Processor (cmd.exe) to run ssh-agent

  •        33

Me too. So, here's a script that will launch ssh-agent, or connect to an existing one. There's also a registry entry key that you can import, that will cause it to run the script automatically in every command processor you open. You probably DO NOT need to use the auto-start registry hack. If you place this script in your startup folder, it should successfully write the variables to your global registry, therefore allowing any further command shells that are spawned to know how to use the ssh-agent.

keychain - keychain ssh-agent front-end

Official documentation for Keychain can be found on the official Keychain wiki page. Keychain helps you to manage ssh and GPG keys in a convenient and secure manner. It acts as a frontend to ssh-agent and ssh-add, but allows you to easily have one long running ssh-agent process per system, rather than the norm of one ssh-agent per login session.

OpenSSH - Keep your communication secret

OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides secure tunneling capabilities and several authentication methods, and supports all SSH protocol versions.

MUltihost SSH Wrapper

Mussh is a shell script that allows you to execute a command or script over ssh on multiple hosts with one command. When possible mussh will use ssh-agent and RSA/DSA keys to minimize the need to enter your password more than once.

Uber's SSH certificate pam module.This is a pam module that will authenticate a user based on them having an ssh certificate in their ssh-agent signed by a specified ssh CA.


PuSSH is Pythonic, Ubiquitous SSH, a Python wrapper/script that runs commands in parallel on clusters/ranges of linux/unix machines via SSH, ideally where SSH is configured to use Kerberos, RSA/DSA keys, or ssh-agent as to avoid password authentication.

i2cssh - csshX like ssh tool for iTerm2

i2cssh is a csshX ( like tool for connecting over ssh to multiple machines. But instead of creating separate windows and having a master window for input, i2cssh uses iterm2 split panes and "Send input to all sessions" (cmd-shift-i) to send commands to all sessions. i2cssh will assume you want to connect to a cluster when only one host is given.

SSH.NET - SSH.NET is a Secure Shell (SSH) library for .NET, optimized for parallelism.

SSH.NET is a Secure Shell (SSH-2) library for .NET, optimized for parallelism.This project was inspired by Sharp.SSH library which was ported from java and it seems like was not supported for quite some time. This library is a complete rewrite, without any third party dependencies, using parallelism to achieve the best performance possible.


SSHKeychain is a GUI front-end for ssh-agent and ssh-add on Mac OS X. It can store your key passphrases in the Apple keychain, automatically add and remove your keys on various triggers. It also has tunnel functionality.


This module provides single sign-on behavior. The user types a passphrase when logging in and is allowed in if it decrypts the user's SSH private key. An ssh-agent is started and keys are added. For the entire session, the user types no more passwords.

exscript - A Python module making Telnet and SSH easy

Exscript is a Python module and a template processor for automating network connections over protocols such as Telnet or SSH. We attempt to create the best possible set of tools for working with Telnet and SSH. Exscript also provides a set of tools and functions for sysadmins, that simplify regular expression matching, reporting by email, logging, or syslog handling, CSV parsing, ip address handling, template processing, and many more.

Apache SSHD - Java library to support the SSH protocols on both the client and server side.

Apache SSHD is a 100% pure java library to support the SSH protocols on both the client and server side. This library is based on Apache MINA, a scalable and high performance asynchronous IO library. SSHD does not really aim at being a replacement for the SSH client or SSH server from Unix operating systems, but rather provides support for Java based applications requiring SSH support.

KeyBox - Web-based SSH console that centrally manages administrative access to systems

KeyBox is an open-source web-based SSH console that centrally manages administrative access to systems. Web-based administration is combined with management and distribution of user's public SSH keys. Key management and administration is based on profiles assigned to defined users. KeyBox layers TLS/SSL on top of SSH and acts as a bastion host for administration. Protocols are stacked (TLS/SSL + SSH) so infrastructure cannot be exposed through tunneling / port forwarding.

bless - Repository for BLESS, an SSH Certificate Authority that runs as a AWS Lambda function

BLESS is an SSH Certificate Authority that runs as an AWS Lambda function and is used to sign SSH public keys.SSH Certificates are an excellent way to authorize users to access a particular SSH host, as they can be restricted for a single use case, and can be short lived. Instead of managing the authorized_keys of a host, or controlling who has access to SSH Private Keys, hosts just need to be configured to trust an SSH CA.
