Support for encrypted ed25519 private keys

Description

Recently I tried to make use of the sftp feature of FileZilla. But I realized that nor the method

  • of adding the privat key to FileZilla
  • using the SSH_AUTH_SOCK

worked for me.

I don't know why SSH_AUTH_SOCK is not working. But I guess the problem with adding the id_ed25519 key has to do with the fact, that the file format for encrypted private key has chaned.

The old format seems to be:

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
DEK-Info: AES-128-CBC,DEADBEEF1234567891011121CAFFEEBABE

[...]
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

The new one misses the header that says that the following is encrypted.

-----BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----
[…]
-----END OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----

So my feature request is to support the new key format that FileZilla is using here.

Well that explains it. You need to update to the most recent version of FileZilla.
