NAME

  ssh_externalkeys - Describes the external key	providers that can be used
  with ssh2 software

DESCRIPTION

  For applications capable of using external keys, two strings must be speci-
  fied:

    +  The provider name

    +  The initialization string for the provider
  These	strings	can be given on	the command line or in the configuration
  file,	depending on the application.

  There	are two	different external key providers:

  accession
	  Accesses keys	through	the ssh-accession application. The only	valid
	  keyword for the initialization string	is accession_path(path). The
	  path should point to the communications socket of accession.

  pkcs11  Accesses keys	through	a pkcs11-compliant dynamic library. The	ini-
	  tialization string should contain the	name of	the library.
