IBM Secure Shell library for Java

Thursday, 19 January 2006, 11:10 AM EST

The Secure Shell (SSH-2 or simply SSH) is a protocol for secure remote log-in and other secure network services over an insecure network. The protocol consists of three major components:

* The Transport Layer Protocol provides server authentication, confidentiality, and integrity.
* The User Authentication Protocol authenticates the client to the server.
* The Connection Protocol multiplexes the encrypted tunnel into several logical channels.

Note that even though SSH stands for "Secure Shell," it is not a shell like the Bash shell known under UNIX operating systems or the command line under Windows. SSH is a protocol, not a product, and the SSH standard defines the protocol only. Also note that the protocol is still in "draft" status, but is due soon; however, it is fairly mature.
