Keychain

https://github.com/funtoo/keychain
Key management front-end for OpenSSH's ssh-agent

'Keychain' helps you to manage RSA and DSA keys conveniently and securely. It acts as a frontend to SSH-agent, but lets you have one long running SSH-agent process per system (rather than the norm of one SSH-agent per login session), so you only need to enter a passphrase once every time your local machine is rebooted. 'Keychain' also makes it easy for remote cron jobs to securely "hook in" to a long running SSH-agent process, so your scripts can take advantage of RSA and DSA keys.
