ChiMeRA is a configuration management tool designed around three basic concepts. The first is a framework for managing servers, allowing for command execution and file transfer over SSH. The second is a repository for managing files that enables change tracking, archiving, and management of various user definable configuration files across multiple servers through a standard revision control tool. The third concept is an aesthetic principle of simplicity, giving administrators straightforward interfaces to manage complicated environments.
skd is a tool for the simple distribution of SSH keys in a growing environment. It allow you to create hosts, group them, and link that group a group of users with keys to easily distribute all affected keys. skd generates a DSA or RSA keypair, which is saved to its database and used as the authentication source for skd itself. This keypair can (and should be) additionally be encrypted using a passphrase. This allows you to simply add a user with their key and press one button to grant (and revoke!) the user's access to all needed hosts.
