I'm implementing libssh2 for iPhone application. And from the application, i'll allow a user to access remote machine and fire commands on terminal. But to use libssh2, i need to authenticate user first and then channel and session can be created, you can take a look at API. But I need is to establish session and channel by authenticating user with private key. So, i need to implement private key in my application. So, is this possible with libssh2? This is critical.
