Our new application needs SshPrivateKey to do an SFTP with a 3rd party server. However, due to our company policy, we can't store private keys in file system ( Our system will pass the key across as a buffer and we are not allow to write it to the disk).

Is there a way to use WinSCP lib to load SSh Private Key from memory instead of the file? Pageant doesn't work either since it ultimately requires the ssh key file to exist on the system.

Thank you very much in advanced.
