SSH (Secure Shell) is a popular, robust, TCP/IP-based product for network security and privacy, supporting strong encryption and authentication. This book covers Unix, Windows, and Macintosh implementations of SSH. It shows both system administrators and end users how to install, maintain, and troubleshoot SSH; configure servers and clients in simple and complex ways; apply SSH to practical problems; and protect other TCP applications through forwarding (tunneling).
product description

Secure your computer network with SSH! With transparent, strong encryption, reliable public-key authentication, and a highly configurable client/server architecture, SSH (Secure Shell) is a popular, robust, TCP/IP-based solution to many network security and privacy concerns. It supports secure remote logins, secure file transfer between computers, and a unique "tunneling" capability that adds encryption to otherwise insecure network applications. Best of all, SSH is free, with feature-filled commercial versions available as well.
