SSH-Keys do not expire AFAIK. You can use OpenPGP-Keys (with authentication 
capability) if you use gpg-agent as replacement for ssh-agent. Without a 
smartcard this is not easy (unless you use gpg 2.1); you may have a look at 
gpgkey2ssh and at monkeysphere.

If you do not want/need to use an OpenPGP key for SSH then you can create SSH 
keys with ssh-keygen.
