Abstract: I will review the motivation, the models, and some astrophysical clues for dark matter in the keV mass range, including sterile neutrinos and string/supersymmetry moduli. I will also discuss the results of an ongoing search for this form of dark matter using dedicated observations on all three X-ray telescopes: Chandra, Suzaku, and XMM-Newton.
