Humans are the weakest link in the chain and are often the target by malicious actors. By migrating your SSH keys to 1Password you are ensuring a smaller attack surface and saving yourself from having to type a (likely weak) password every time you need to sign a Git commit or connect over SSH.

Sign Git commits with your fingerprint
Store your SSH keys in 1Password and use them to authenticate and confirm that your Git commits came from you. Simplify key creation, storage, and setup for GitHub, GitLab, and other platforms.
I store my SSH key in 1Password and use it for both Git + SSH and commit signing. Signing SSH private keys meant I don’t have to bother with GPG. Every tool that wants access for auth or signing triggers a Touch ID prompt for 24 hour access. I’m pretty happy with the setup.

Configure when an application can ask for access to a given key, and how long it should remember that approval, with advanced security settings.
Control SSH key order and location
An agent config file allows you to choose the keys to use on that machine, and the order in which to use them, from any vault.
See caller details before you approve
Each access request dialog gives you the ability to inspect the details of the process requesting access.
