-adds identities to the authentication agent,
-.Xr ssh-agent 1 .
-When run without arguments, it adds the file
-.Pa $HOME/.ssh/identity .
-Alternative file names can be given on the
-command line. If any file requires a passphrase,
-asks for the passphrase from the user.
-The Passphrase it is read from the user's tty.
-The authentication agent must be running and must be an ancestor of
-the current process for
-to work.
-The options are as follows:
-.Bl -tag -width Ds
-.It Fl l
-Lists all identities currently represented by the agent.
-.It Fl d
-Instead of adding the identity, removes the identity from the agent.
-.It Fl D
-Deletes all identities from the agent.
-.Bl -tag -width Ds
-.Pa $HOME/.ssh/identity
-Contains the RSA authentication identity of the user. This file
-should not be readable by anyone but the user.
-Note that
-ignores this file if it is accessible by others.
-It is possible to
-specify a passphrase when generating the key; that passphrase will be
-used to encrypt the private part of this file. This is the
-default file added by
-when no other files have been specified.
-needs a passphrase, it will read the passphrase from the current
-terminal if it was run from a terminal. If
-does not have a terminal associated with it but
-is set, it
-will open an X11 window to read the passphrase. This is particularly
-useful when calling
-from a
-.Pa .Xsession
-or related script. (Note that on some machines it
-may be necessary to redirect the input from
-.Pa /dev/null
-to make this work.)

-is a derivative of the original (free) ssh 1.2.12 release, but with bugs
-removed and newer features re-added. Rapidly after the 1.2.12 release,
-newer versions bore successively more restrictive licenses. This version
-of OpenSSH
-.Bl -bullet
-has all components of a restrictive nature (ie. patents, see
-.Xr ssl 8 )
-directly removed from the source code; any licensed or patented components
-are chosen from
-external libraries.
-has been updated to support ssh protocol 1.5.
-contains added support for
-.Xr kerberos 8
-authentication and ticket passing.
-supports one-time password authentication with
-.Xr skey 1 .
-The libraries described in
-.Xr ssl 8
-are required for proper operation.
