If we can use SSH to log in on servers, why can't we use it to log in on websites?

@yarmo a website could generate a random hex, set a timeout and tell the user to sign it with the SSH key and paste the signature before the timeout expires. One time password.

@epilys precisely. With a bit of tooling around it, could be quite frictionless!

Worth a PoC


@yarmo Ready :)

A bit of PITA as user experience goes, but that was expected. Piping the sig to xclip is a small improvement
