SSH Agent in a Suite

SSH Agent

New Version 1.1!

Get it here!

SSH Agent is a graphical front-end to some of the OpenSSH tools included with Mac OS X. Specifically, it allows you to start an ssh-agent, generate identities, and add identities to an agent. Additionally, it allows you to make the ssh-agent global so that, e.g., Xcode can use it to do version control over SSH, and it has some functionality to set-up a secure tunnel.

There is no Help. Or at least, not much. See the Version History and my blog for more information.
