Seems like this could be interesting to some libssh2 peeps as well...

I've maintained the PROTOCOL.agent file in the OpenSSH source distribution as a half-assed standard for some time, but I think that the protocol is widely used enough to warrant an actual RFC. So I've converted the half-assed documentation into something a little bit more formal and published it as an I-D at https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-miller-ssh-agent-00 This is pretty much exactly the protocol as OpenSSH implements it. The main changes from PROTOCOL.agent (for those who are familiar with it) are removal of SSH v.1 bits and adding a couple of backwards-compatible extension mechanisms to support user_at_domain.org-style extensibility. I'd welcome any feedback and/or assistance in getting it completed and published. Thanks to Simon Tatham for reviewing an earlier version. -d  https://github.com/openssh/openssh-portable/blob/master/PROTOCOL.agent _______________________________________________ libssh2-devel http://cool.haxx.se/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/libssh2-develReceived on 2016-05-24
