ssh-multiadd adds multiple ssh keys to the ssh authentication agent. These may use the same passphrase. When run without arguments, it adds $HOME/.ssh/identity and $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa. Alternative file names can be given on the command line or in the configuration file. It uses ssh-askpass if necessary. Unlike ssh-add, if any of the keys use the same passphrase, you will only need to enter each unique passphrase once, and keys that are already added will not be prompted for again.
