gnome-keyring support SSH private keys that are saved in the newer OpenSSH file format? Will Gnome Keyring automatically import those private keys?
In more detail: When generating a SSH private key,
ssh-keygen can save the private key in the newer OpenSSH format (rather than the "more compatible PEM format"). With this format, the private key file begins with "
-----BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----".
I just generated a new RSA private key for SSH and saved it in the newer format, using
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 3072 -o -a 16. Now Gnome Keyring doesn't seem to be able to load that private key. In contrast, everything seems to work fine when using
When using Gnome Keyring with this new private key, I see the following error messages in
gnome-keyring-daemon: invalid or unrecognized private SSH key: [key id] gnome-keyring-daemon: signing of the data failed: The operation failed
and when I try to run
ssh, I see the following error message in my terminal:
sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation
If it's relevant, I'm using Fedora 25 with MATE, with
