Secure shell client, an rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement

This is the portable version of OpenSSH, a free implementation of the Secure Shell protocol as specified by the IETF secsh working group.

Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine and for executing commands on a remote machine. It provides secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel. It is intended as a replacement for rlogin, rsh and rcp, and can be used to provide applications with a secure communication channel.

This package provides the ssh, scp and sftp clients, the ssh-agent and ssh-add programs to make public key authentication more convenient, and the ssh-keygen, ssh-keyscan, ssh-copy-id and ssh-argv0 utilities.


In some countries it may be illegal to use any encryption at all without a special permit.

Package version:1:4.3p2-9etch3

OpenSSH for Debian

ssh that is going to make it into Debian proper, being the only one

== What Happened ==

A weakness has been discovered in the random number generator used by OpenSSL
on Debian and Ubuntu systems.  As a result of this weakness, certain encryption
keys are much more common than they should be, such that an attacker could
guess the key through a brute
