I have a Yubikey 4 and I want to use my GPG keys stored on this to authenticate to SSH servers.
I want to use GitHub for a start. I have already added my GPG authentication key to GitHub.
My problem is that when I ssh, my agent doesn't use this key. I've checked by trying to connect to my VPS with
ssh -v but it skips my GPG key. My Yubikey is plugged in and
gpg2 --card-status shows all the details. I am able to sign and decrypt fine as well as use the other features of the Yubikey.
The ssh ouput
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /home/wilhelm/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Trying private key: /home/wilhelm/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Trying private key: /home/wilhelm/.ssh/id_ecdsa debug1: Trying private key: /home/wilhelm/.ssh/id_ed25519 debug1: No more authentication methods to try. Permission denied (publickey).
I have disabled gnome password manager.
I've looked at Connecting SSH and Git to gpg-agent and followed the suggestion, but it doesn't seem to be working.
