SSH Agent Forwarding

SSH agent forwarding allows use of private, local SSH key on a remote server without needing to explicitly transfer or install the key on the remote server.

Enable forwarding in ~/.ssh/config e.g.:

IdentityFile ~/.ssh/my_key_rsa
ForwardAgent yes

Register/add the key to be forwarded:

$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/my_key_rsa

Connect, with formwarding enabled:

$ ssh -v

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LittleCodingKata GitHub repository.

LittleCodingKata is my collection of programming exercises, research and code toys broadly spanning things that relate to programming and software development (languages, frameworks and tools).

These range from the trivial to the complex and serious. Many are inspired by existing work and I'll note credits and references where applicable. The focus is quite scattered, as I variously work on things new and important in the moment, or go back to revisit things from the past.

This is primarily a personal collection for my own edification and learning, but anyone who stumbles by is welcome to borrow, steal or reference the work here. And if you spot errors or issues I'd really appreciate some feedback - create an issue, send me an email or even send a pull-request.
