In reply to It's Now Possible To Sign Arbitrary Data With Your SSH Keys

Is it possible to sign but providing the private key via an SSH agent instead of a file? In other words without the "-f ~/.ssh/id_ed25519"

For example KeePass can act as an SSH agent, and the user won't have any private keys on disk. Other users may have their own SSH agents.
