ssh-keysign(8) [osx man page]

SSH-KEYSIGN(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					    SSH-KEYSIGN(8)

NAME
ssh-keysign -- ssh helper program for host-based authentication SYNOPSIS
ssh-keysign DESCRIPTION
ssh-keysign is used by ssh(1) to access the local host keys and generate the digital signature required during host-based authentication with SSH protocol version 2. ssh-keysign is disabled by default and can only be enabled in the global client configuration file /etc/ssh/ssh_config by setting EnableSSHKeysign to ``yes''. ssh-keysign is not intended to be invoked by the user, but from ssh(1). See ssh(1) and sshd(8) for more information about host-based authen- tication. FILES
/etc/ssh/ssh_config Controls whether ssh-keysign is enabled. /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key These files contain the private parts of the host keys used to generate the digital signature. They should be owned by root, read- able only by root, and not accessible to others. Since they are readable only by root, ssh-keysign must be set-uid root if host- based authentication is used. Note that ssh-keysign is not set-uid by default on Mac OS X. /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key-cert.pub /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key-cert.pub /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key-cert.pub If these files exist they are assumed to contain public certificate information corresponding with the private keys above.
