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. Negative answers will be stored in the KWallet to avoid being asked
each time. kwalletaskpass uses the KWallet folders kwalletaskpass and
kwalletaskpass-blacklist with matching entry names.

If anything other than a key passphrase is requested, it is merely relayed to
kwalletcli_getpin(1). Some requests are known to require a boolean answer and are relayed
using the boolean query flag; all others are relayed using a PIN query. ssh(1) accepts
either the literal word “yes” (case-insensitively matched) or an empty answer (both only
when using the OK button) as confirmation.

There are currently no options.


kwalletaskpass exits 0 on success, 1 if the user cancelled the dialogue, or >1 if an error


DISPLAY The X11 display to use for child processes. If this is unset or empty, kwalletcli
will not be called.
