|KWALLETASKPASS(1)||General Commands Manual||KWALLETASKPASS(1)|
kwalletaskpassis a kwallet- and pinentry-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH. It is intended to be called from the ssh-add(1) program 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-blacklist with matching entry
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.
kwalletaskpassexits 0 on success, 1 if the user cancelled the dialogue, or >1 if an error occurred.

kwalletaskpasswas written by mirabilos ⟨email@example.com⟩ mostly for tarent solutions GmbH. The idea came from an askpass.C file found somewhere on the 'net, with no author information. Since it was licenced less freely, this is a rewrite from scratch; modular and with more functionality, too.
