How to remember passphrase for decrypt private key

I am using SecureCRT 8.5.4 build 1942 with OpenSC PKCS 11 and yubikey(Certificate and PIN) in MacOS 10.15.3

When I ssh to a server by PublicKey, SecureCRT always ask Yubikey PIN code
Massage like "Enter a passphrase to decrypt your private key"

Is any way to remember yubikey PIN?

Hi Kevin,

As a note, the first version with official support for Catalina (10.15.x) is v8.7, currently in public beta release. Official release is currently scheduled for February 11, but subject to change.

I would need more details about the interaction to determine if sending the PIN can be automated.

Is it always the same PIN?

Where do you get the PIN from?

Is the message to enter the passphrase in the terminal window?

What sort of authentication has come before that?
