[SECURITY] Fedora 8 Update: python-paramiko-1.7.1-3.fc8

Description

Paramiko (a combination of the esperanto words for "paranoid" and "friend") is a module for python 2.3 or greater that implements the SSH2 protocol for se cure (encrypted and authenticated) connections to remote machines. Unlike SSL (a ka TLS), the SSH2 protocol does not require heirarchical certificates signed b y a powerful central authority. You may know SSH2 as the protocol that replaced telnet and rsh for secure access to remote shells, but the protocol also includes the ability to open arbitrary channels to remote services across an encrypted tunnel. (This is how sftp works, for example.)
