NAME

       secsh - the Secure Shell protocol

DESCRIPTION

       secsh  is  a protocol suite for secure remote login and other secure network services over
       an insecure network. It is outlined in [SECSH].  It has three major components:

       The Transport layer protocol
              This  protocol,  specified  in   [SECSH-TLP],   provides   server   authentication,
              confidentiality, and integrity with perfect forward secrecy.

       The User authentication protocol
              This  protocol,  specified  in  [SECSH-AUTH], is used to authenticate a client to a
              server.

       The Connection protocol
              This protocol, specified in [SECSH-CONN],  multiplexes  an  encrypted  tunnel  into
              several logical channels.

IMPLEMENTATIONS

       Several implementations of the secsh protocol suite exist.

       The  SSH2 product of SSH Communications Security Ltd., Finland <URL:http://www.ssh.fi> was
       the first. The secsh protocol suite has benefited a lot from their experience  with  their
       older  SSH1  product,  which  is  still in widespread use; it implements an older protocol
       ([SSH1]).

       The lsh suite of programs is a free implementation of the  secsh  protocol  suite;  it  is
       distributed under the GNU General Public License.
