Hello Mr. Port Maintainer,

   How do I get PKI capability added to the WishList for OpenSSH in FreeBSD.  I am just a devoted user...  who would like to have PKI security capability built into my FreeBSD system like it is in Windows.  SSH would be a great start.  

Is this something that can even be considered??  Thanks!

It should be question to maintainer of FreeBSD port of OpenSSH since I 
don't use FreeBSD.
I could help him to resolve incompatibility problem with different patches.


P.S.: The OpenSSH team ignore all patches from OpenBSD team. The reasons 
could be found on openssh dev. list but I think that all code written by 
other than core OpenBSD members will be ignored forever.
