Description

The openssh package is the most widely used implementation of the secure shell protocol family (ssh). It provides a set of network connectivity tools for remote (shell) login, designed to substitute the traditional BSD-style r-protocols (rsh, rlogin). openssh has various authentification mechanisms and many other features such as TCP connection and X11 display forwarding over the fully encrypted network connection as well as file transfer facilities.
