paramiko 1.15.1

Open source SSH2 connection protocol for Python
paramiko is a free and open source module for Python 2.2 (or higher) that implements the SSH2 protocol for secure (authenticated and encrypted) connections to remote machines.

Unlike SSL (aka TLS), SSH2 protocol does not require hierarchical certificates signed by a powerful central authority.

You may know SSH2 as the protocol that replaced telnet and rsh for secure access to remote shells, but the protocol also includes the ability to open arbitrary channels to remote services across the encrypted tunnel -- this is how sftp works, for example.

NOTE: paramiko is licensed and provided under the terms of the GNU LGPL (lesser GPL).
