My Mac keychain password or SSH key was lost

The keychain in Macintosh OS X is the Apple password and SSH key management system. A keychain can store all your passwords and SSH keys for applications, servers, and web sites, or even sensitive information unrelated to your computer, such as credit card numbers or personal identification numbers (PINs) for bank accounts.

If you have added a Mac OS X system to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, you may receive a message that says, The system was unable to unlock your login keychain. That is because Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically updates the account passwords on all managed systems based on the policies your Security Policy Administrator has configured, but it does not update the keychain password.
