Secure Shell (SSH)

SSH is a secure replacements for telnet, ftp, rsh, and rcp. All communication using SSH is encrypted using strong, modern ciphers and protocols. No JTAN hosts permit telnet, and we are phasing out the use of ftp. For more detailed information about how the ssh-protocol works and what benefits it provides, please read this very nice FAQ.
