As part of the development of Agit I created this patch of ConnectBot which allows other android apps to use it as an ssh-agent. This means that Agit doesn't need to actually manage or even store SSH keys itself, which is pretty cool.

You only need to trust one app with your SSH keys - that's ConnectBot, which already has great infrastructure for managing public keys - and all other apps defer to it for signing the cryptographic-challenges required to initiate an SSH session.

The pull-request to get this functionality merged back into ConnectBot is here:

    ConnectBot(ssh-agent) has some problems (1) I have not found, how to open more connections to the same server. (2) ConnectBot(ssh-agent) ignores CTRL from other Hackers keyboard. (3) for every new connection the font is unreadably small, until force resize. (4) somehow for stored connections I cannot write any text in the shell, (5) no landscape mode

    Landscape keyboard keeps me from seeing what I'm typing in the terminal. Please fix. Otherwise great app.
