Official Mirror:
Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine and for executing commands in a remote machine. It 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. OpenSSH is OpenBSD's rework of the last free version of SSH, bringing it up to date in terms of security and features, as well as removing all patented algorithms to separate libraries (OpenSSL). This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client and server. To make this package useful, you should also install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both. You can build openssh with some conditional build swithes; (ie. use with rpm --rebuild): --with[out] skey smartcard support (disabled) --with[out] krb5 kerberos support (enabled) --with[out] watchdog watchdog support (disabled) --with[out] x11askpass X11 ask pass support (enabled) --with[out] gnomeaskpass Gnome ask pass support (enabled) --with[out] ldap OpenLDAP support (enabled) --with[out] sftpcontrol sftp file control support (disabled) --with[out] hpn HPN ssh/scp support (disabled) --with[out] audit audit support (disabled) --with[out] libedit libedit support in sftp (enabled)
