I have some CPU servers that connect to some other devices via SSH. Being a CPU server, factotum doesn’t ask for passwords, and this CPU server is remote anyway and will running scripts to access the other hardware. 

While we could add the key (username, password, ssh thumb) to factotum through a script, it would be a lot nicer to have the other one or two keys loaded from nvram. I know the nvram partition is typically small (only 512 bytes), but I also know that a larger nvram partition could be made. So is there a way to add keys to the nvram?

I did try to use auth/factotum -k (with -S) to 'write’ factotum to nvram as stated in the man page. We also checked the secstore man page and tried the procedure outlined there (though lacked confidence that would work because it is specific for a secstore server) - that did not work either. 

Look forward to the response.
