SSH-ADD(1) BSD General Commands Manual SSH-ADD(1)
-c Indicates that added identities should be subject to con-
firmation before being used for authentication. Confir-
mation is performed by the SSH_ASKPASS program mentioned
below. Successful confirmation is signaled by a zero
exit status from the SSH_ASKPASS program, rather than
text entered into the requester.
This was added in OpenSSH 3.6.
