A model to think of might be that of ssh-agent.  (Conceivably that might
be a relevant tool to actually _use_, but I'll not assume that...)

The idea of ssh-agent is that you start it at the start of a session,
perhaps doing some authentication to get things started, and can then
add keys to it that allow automated authentication of later activities.
