Yes, you can do this, though I'd caution you to be very careful and make
sure that the permissions on the objects in your LDAP directory that have
the private keys are very locked down.  Basically only the users who are
going to run the connection should have any access to that Guacamole
connection object.

Basically, any of the parameters on that page can be put into the
configuration, so you can use the "private-key" parameter as well as the
"passphrase" parameter (if required).
