Is it possible to set the ssh-broker-config.xml to read in a key passphrase file so that during transparent tunneling instead of prompting for passphrase it would read the passphrase from a specified file?

Would prefer this rather than creating a script and using ssh-broker-ctl to read in the passphrase.

Thanks in advance.

Currently it's not possible to read a key's passphrase from file. This would have to be done in the way you suggested, by using ssh-broker-ctl to unlock the key, such as:

ssh-broker-ctl key-passphrase --passphrase-file=PASSPHRASE_FILE

Another option could be to configure a profile to use password authentication and read the password from file.
