  Description     : Authenticate using SSH keys

This PAM module provides single sign-on behavior for SSH.
The user types an SSH passphrase when logging in and is
authenticated if the passphrase successfully decrypts the
user's SSH private key. In the PAM session phase, an ssh-agent
process is started and keys are added. For the entire session,
the user can SSH to other hosts that accept key authentication
without typing any passwords.
