ACS only supports passwords and keys without a passphrase. It would be ideal to have SSH keys that are protected by a passphrase, but ACS doesn't support that. Furthermore, even if passphrases are supported, supporting an agent would be even better, as it would reduce the amount that passwords need to be typed, and open the door to advanced SSH key setups (i.e. using things like Yubikeys).
We have users with passphrase protected SSH keys that aren't able to use functionality in ACS that uses SSH (i.e. package management).
