Graphical password applet for entering SSH passphrase

ssh-askpass is a small applet intended for use in conjunction with OpenSSH. It pops up a window and requests the user input their SSH passphrase. It is not designed to be executed directly, but to be called by OpenSSH’s ssh-add1 utility. If no controlling terminal is found e.g. ssh-add is called from the .xinitrc as part of the X login process, and DISPLAY is set, ssh-add will spawn ssh-askpass to request the password.
