This pluggable authentication module (PAM) provides single sign-on
using secure shell (SSH) keys:
- during authentication, the user types a SSH passphrase and is authenticated
if the passphrase successfully decrypts the user's SSH private keys;
- in session phase, a ssh-agent process is started and decrypted keys are
added, and thus the user can SSH to other hosts that accept key
authentication without typing more passwords for the entire session.
