My instance of Tectia Server (6.4) is set up for certificate authentication. If I wanted to use a client certificate in a broker config profile, I'd probably have an element like this:

  <key-store type="software" init="key_files(/etc/ssh2/client_cert.p12) key_passphrase_file(/etc/ssh2/client_cert.p12.pwd)" />

I want to be able to use different certs on demand, without updating the broker config.

man sshg3:
-K, --identity-key-file=FILE
Defines that the given key file of a private key or certificate is used in user authentication.
The path to the keyfile is given in the command.

This appears to be almost what I want, but I don't see a way to specify the type or the password.

Is there any way to achieve on-demand certificate selection?
