I have a utility that I would like to snap which connects to SFTP servers. To achieve this it will need access to the .ssh/known_hosts file and preferably access to the ssh-agent running on a system. ssh-agent will probably need to require a new plug, so this post is the request for such an interface.
As a followup question is the
home plug sufficient to access the .ssh/known_hosts file or is that folder specifically excluded via preventing access to files and folders beginning with a dot when the home plug is used? If there is no way currently then I would like to request another plug for, or for the above ssh-agent plug to include, accessing the ssh known_hosts file.
I advise that such plugs need to be sure not to expose any private keys in the .ssh folder.
