A customer came up with a private key that he wanted to use for SSH/SFTP authentication.

The first line is:

Is it possible to add support for this format, or is it entirely proprietary?

Hi Tobias,

Could you please share an example key with us so that we could check how exactly its key material is stored between the ---- BEGIN and ---- END lines? SecureBlackbox has been supporting certain variants of Vandyke keys for quite some time, but I can't recall any starting with the above line. So it's all about the key format itself in the end.
