PAM module for use with SSH keys and ssh-agent

This PAM module provides single sign-on behavior for UNIX using SSH keys. Users are authenticated by decrypting their SSH private keys with the password provided.

In any case the appropriate environment variables are set in the session phase.
Package version:1.97
