Package Space Applications – openssh


OpenSSH is a version of the SSH suite of network connectivity tools. OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other network-level attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides a myriad of secure tunnelling capabilities.

The openssh package consists of binary files (ssh, scp, sftp), a daemon (sshd), an sftp server (sftp-server), and man pages. They live in bin, sbinlibexec, and share/man respectively.
