kwalletaskpass - kwallet-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH
kwalletaskpass [options] label
kwalletaskpass is a kwallet- and pinentry-based pass-phrase dialog for
use with OpenSSH. It is intended to be called from the ssh-add(1)
programme and not invoked directly.
If a passphrase is requested, kwalletaskpass works by first looking up
the passphrase in the KWallet by means of kwalletcli(1); using it if
found, then calling kwalletcli_getpin(1) to interactively retrieve an
answer from the user via pinentry otherwise. If the user specifies a
passphrase, kwalletcli_getpin(1) is run again to ask if the passphrase
should be stored in the KWallet. If a confirmation instead of a
passphrase is requested, it is merely relayed to kwalletcli_getpin(1).
There are currently no options.
kwalletaskpass exits 0 on success, 1 if the user cancelled the dialogue,
or >1 if an error occured.
PINENTRY The pinentry programme to use. The default is inherited from
kwalletcli(1), kwalletcli_getpin(1), ssh-add(1), ssh-askpass(1)
kwalletaskpass was written by Thorsten Glaser 〈email@example.com〉 mostly for
tarent GmbH. The idea came from an askpass.C file found somewhere on the
’net, with no author information. Since it was licenced less freely,
this is a rewrite from scratch; modular and with more functionality, too.
