Charade is an ssh-agent in cygwin that proxies requests to pageant. If you don't use cygwin or pageant, you don't need charade. Background: I tolerate Windows XP. I actually quite like it. But it needs putty, and it needs cygwin to be usable. I used to maintain two separate sets of ssh keys: one for putty, which I kept in pageant, and another for cygwin's openssh, which I kept in ssh-agent/keychain. Eventually I got fed up maintaining two key pairs and charade was born. It's really just a program that pretends to be ssh-agent on one side and pretends to be putty on the other. How do you run it? Just like ssh-agent. Wesley Darlington, November 2009.
