ssh-ident allows you to have a single line in your .bashrc, then let it take care of loading ssh-agents when first needed, load all the necessary keys, and share ssh-agents across login consoles. If you have multiple identities for the same account, it is able to load different keys depending on the host you connect to or the path you are working from. At the same time, it keeps the ssh-agents separated and forwards only the keys which are needed for the specific host. It also allows you to specify ssh-add options, so you can automatically lock keys which are unused for a certain time, or have a confirmation request every time a specific key is used.
KeyBox provides a way to manage OpenSSH v2 public keys, and can start a Web-based SSH terminal to execute commands and scripts on multiple SSH sessions simultaneously. The authorized_keys file is generated and distributed based on relationships maintained in the application. This allows for centralized management to help prevent public key sprawl. Also, composite terminals or scripts can be created so that commands can be shared across SSH sessions.
DynaFabric is an SSH-based command dispatching and systems management framework, designed for easy implementation on existing networks. It allows you to configure SSH key based authentication and centrally dispatch commands, manage installed software, maintain services, and enforce policies across your systems. It is designed to be platform agnostic; support is being developed for FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Solaris 10, Solaris 11, and Illumos.
ECommands is intended to make it easy to execute commands over Unix/Linux Servers using a Web interface. It was implemented completely in Python and Django, and it will work from automation processes to generalization commands. It allows centralized administration, better understanding of repetitive and complex operating systems commands, connections made over SSH to multiple servers using a Web console, auditory feedback over the execution of commands processes on servers, multiple users and permissions, easy installation on 64-bit Linux, grouping commands, and more.
Ansible is a radically simple deployment, configuration, and command execution framework. It is dead simple and painless to extend. Extending Ansible does not require programming in any particular language; you can write modules as scripts or programs which return simple JSON. It’s also trivially easy to just execute useful shell commands.
lpkfuse is a FUSE filesystem that lets you place all the SSH public keys of your users into LDAP. Without this tool, you would have to patch your SSH server (for example using openssh-lpk) to support this. But with lpkfuse, you just need to amend AuthorizedKeysFile in your sshd_config file. Other benefits include LDAP resilence and caching/local-fallback in case no LDAP servers are accessible.
