There is a way to use 1Password SSH Key with Vandyke SecureCRT and SecureFX on Windows and Mac OS? It will be usefull to have it as I use an external usb-key with a certificate, but it's only for work servers.

Thanks for your support!

    Hi @RedFoxy:

    Great question! As it currently stands, the 1Password SSH agent is only compatible with SSH clients that use the default Windows OpenSSH agent. From a quick look, it seems like SecureCRT uses it's own built in agent, rather than using a system agent. Is that correct?

    Let me know.

    Sorry I don't know but I know that I can use CAPI or PKCS #11 provider DLL as you can see in following picture, I've a certificate on a card and I use it to login on my company's servers by SSH with SecureCRT

    I'd recommend that you submit a ticket on their side to add support for Microsoft's OpenSSH agent pipe (\\.\pipe\openssh-ssh-agent), which will allow it to authenticate requests using the OpenSSH agent that ships by default on Windows. Doing so would also add support for the 1Password SSH agent for free.
