Doorman SSH Connection Utility
Doorman build 153
Doorman is a utility that allows a single SSH connection to be
used for multiple operations without requiring re-authentication.
This is primarily useful with Subversion and CVS tunneling over
SSH, but could be used for other things as well.
The functionality doorman provides can be achieved using
key based authentication with SSH. For applications where key
based authentication is unavailable or undesirable, doorman allows
for single password entry without the security issues associated
with tools that write passwords to persistent storage. In
particular, security practices are difficult to manage with key
based authentication in corporate environments. Using password
authentication in corporate environments can allow use of existing
authentication mechanisms via LDAP, Active Directory, etc..
