[Home]Secure Shell

HomePage | Recent Changes | Preferences

A program for logging into, and executing commands on, a remote computer. Secure Shell is intended to replace rlogin? and rsh?, and provide 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.

The program is common as a Unix shell program, but there exists implementations for most modern platforms, including Microsoft Windows (where one of the most popular is Putty?).

A second version is named SSH2.

see also telnet, OpenSSH
