ssh-keysign

ssh helper program for host-based authentication

SYNOPSIS

ssh-keysign

DESCRIPTION

ssh-keysign is used by ssh(1) to access the local host keys and generate the digital signature required during host-based authentication.

ssh-keysign is disabled by default and can only be enabled in the global client configuration file /etc/ssh/ssh_config by setting EnableSSHKeysign to ``yes .''

ssh-keysign is not intended to be invoked by the user, but from ssh(1). See ssh(1) and sshd(8) for more information about host-based authentication.
