Thumbs up Feature request: confirmation pop up for SSH agent forwarding

By nature of my work I often have to use jump stations that I don't control. I enjoy using SSH keys and ssh agent forwarding feature in SecureCRT, but there is one secrity concern. Anyone with root shell on jump station can misuse my ssh key while I am logged in nad have agent forwarding enabled. I would like to be asked for confirmation each time secureCRT forwards ssh agent from local PC to remote host. Should be easy to implement and will close significant security concern.

Hi pipindopal,

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to provide an option to display a confirmation dialog when a key in the ssh agent is being forwarded. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #12887" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
