SSHMan is a simple ssh agent helper, along the lines of keychain. Some of sshman's features:

  • Persistant management of ssh agents.
  • Will only prompt for adding ssh keys to the agent one place at any one time.
  • Will not slow down logging into X, the ssh password prompt will be started in the background.
  • Will not try to start an agent if the user is logging in via ssh.
