Delete key from ssh-agent on Mac OS X 10.6

osx-snow-leopardsshssh-agent

I'm trying to find a way to delete a single ssh identity from my Mac's ssh-agent, the ssh-add man page states the -d option does

Instead of adding identities, removes identities from the agent.
If ssh-add has been run without arguments, the keys for the default identities will be removed. 
Otherwise, the argument list will be interpreted as a list of paths to public key files and matching keys will be removed from the agent.
If no public key is found at a given path, ssh-add will append .pub and retry.

Since I have multiple keys I can't call them all id_dsa and I can't pass them as an argument since I wan't to delete the identities not the public keys.

So does anyone know another way to delete from ssh-agent on a Mac?

  • You can open Keychain Access located in /Applications/Utilities/ and navigate to your login keychain login keychain.

    Once there, you can delete SSH keys. They should look like SSH: /Users/your username/.ssh/key name SSH Key
