Subject [jira] Updated: (VFS-115) Sftp should support keypairs and private keys in locations other than fies
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2007 23:11:24 GMT


Brad Davis updated VFS-115:

    Attachment: patch.txt

this is a first pass patch that replaces the functionality of specifying identites by file
objects with specifying them with VFS urls.  it breaks compatibility with existing code specifying
files, but with some small amount of additional work back-incompatibly could likely be maintained
by changing File specifications to local filesystems URLS on the fly in the internals of the
session builder.  I'll try to work on a second patch implementing this later on.

> I am attempting to use jar based keypairs in several applications I am developing.  Unfortunately
because the SFTP configuration only allows for a file to be specified for the private key,
in order to use a key stored in a resource I have to first copy the resource to the local
filesystem and then use that temporary file.  I'd much rather that I could specify the location
of the location of private key as a VFS url.  Jsch supports using a byte array instead of
a file to specify the private key, so VFS could be used to turn the URL into a byte array
and pass that to JSCH instead.
