implementation uses them but they're defined, none-the-less, in
PKCS#1 / RFC3447.
I guess to an extent, all SSH implementations support it if you choose
not to utilize the Chinese Remainder Theorem to speed the decryption
process up and just take the d'th power of the ciphertext mod n, but
do they support all the extra parameters that the private key format
in PKCS#1 describes?
Re: SSH and multi-prime RSA
First I've heard of them! No, nothing in the PuTTY suite makes any
effort to support RSA keys with more than two factors. (Though
you're probably right that some parts of the code will still work,
simply by not noticing the difference.)
I'm not currently aware of any support for this case in the SSH
