Free SSH/SecSH protocol suite featuring encryption for network services like remote file transfer or remote login





OpenSSH is a FREE edition of the SSH connectivity utilities on which technical users of the Internet depend on. Users of rlogin, telnet, and ftp may not understand that their passwords are sent across the Internet unencrypted, but this is exactly what happens.

OpenSSH offers end-to-end encrypted substitutes for tools such as telnet, rlogin, and ftp. Unlike these legacy utilities, OpenSSH never transfers anything (including usernames and passwords) over the web in an unencrypted form, and provides host authentication, to check that you really are talking to the system you think you are and that no one else will be able to take over that session.

By completely encrypting all traffic OpenSSH effectively rules out eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other similar attacks. Furthermore, OpenSSH brings to the table secure tunneling capabilitie, various authentication methods, and support for all SSH protocol versions.
