  OpenSSH - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
OpenSSH was created by the OpenBSD team as an alternative to the original SSH software by Tatu Ylönen, which is now proprietary software.
The OpenSSH developers claim that it is more secure than the original, due to their policy of producing clean and audited code and the fact, to which the word open in the name refers, that it is released under the open source BSD license.
OpenSSH 4.3 was released on February 1, 2006 [1].

 OpenSSH
OpenSSH is a FREE version of the SSH protocol suite of network connectivity tools that increasing numbers of people on the Internet are coming to rely on.
The OpenSSH suite includes the ssh program which replaces rlogin and telnet, scp which replaces rcp, and sftp which replaces ftp.
OpenSSH is primarily developed by the OpenBSD Project, and its first inclusion into an operating system was in OpenBSD 2.6.

 Secure Shell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Used by some OpenSSH configurations when PAM is the underlying host authentication provider to effectively provide password authentication, sometimes leading to inability to log in with a client that supports just the plain "password" authentication method.
OpenSSH for Windows - Cygwin package consisting of a server and client.
It can be installed standalone, without a Cygwin environment but Cygwin and OpenSSH can not coexist as separate installations on the same machine, unless OpenSSH is installed inside the Cygwin environment.

 CERT Advisory CA-2002-18 OpenSSH Vulnerabilities in Challenge Response Handling
System administrators running OpenSSH versions 3.2 or 3.3 may be able to reduce the impact of this vulnerability by enabling the "UsePrivilegeSeparation" configuration option in their sshd configuration file.
OpenSSH is not included in any world-wide version of JUNOS, nor is it included in the Prisma G10 CMTS software release.
The Red Hat Linux OpenSSH packages were not compiled with either BSD_AUTH or SKEY enabled, therefore in order to be vulnerable to this issue a user would need to have enabled the configuration option "PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt" in their sshd configuration file (the default is disabled).

 OpenSSH FAQ
The OpenSSH suite includes the ssh(1) program which replaces rlogin and telnet, and scp(1) which replaces rcp(1) and ftp(1).
OpenSSH releases prior to 3.8 had an moduli file with moduli that were just smaller than what sshd would look for, and as a result, sshd would end up using moduli significantly larger than requested, which resulted in a speed penalty.
OpenSSH and OpenSSL were compiled with gcc 3.3.x.

 OpenSSH
OpenSSH is a free, open source implementation of the SSH (Secure SHell) protocols.
Since OpenSSH version 2.9, the default protocol in Red Hat Linux 7.2 is version 2, which uses RSA keys as the default.
The OpenSSH set of utilities should be used whenever possible to avoid these security problems.

I'm one of the OpenSSH developers, and occasionally I put up patches that are for testing or haven't been integrated yet.
OpenSSH is a BSD-licensed SSH implementation, originally based on the last free SSH release.
If you have been running OpenSSH on AIX for a while without this patch, some of your user accounts may have exceeded the "Weeks between password EXPIRATION and LOCKOUT" setting, and when sshd starts enforcing the password expiration rules, you may find many accounts are now locked out.

 OpenSSH's Cinderella story | Tech News on ZDNet
OpenSSH's official history details the sequence of events far more exhaustively than is necessary here.

 Optimizing OpenSSH
OpenSSH is a secure replacement for deprecated protocols such as telnet and rsh.
OpenSSH offers too many options, in both the client and the server, and these options make OpenSSH complicated to use and allows bugs to creep in.
Of course, using OpenSSH (or any SSH for that matter) can be as complex or as easy as you wish it to be.

 The 101 Uses of OpenSSH: Part I | Linux Journal
OpenSSH built on Groenvall's work (his version, called OSSH, is still available), adding support for later versions of the ssh protocol and modularizing its cryptographic mechanisms in such a way that it's possible to compile OpenSSH without any patented algorithms whatsoever (i.e., without support for ssh v.1 protocols, which depend on RSA).
The other innovation the OpenBSD team brought is the forking of the OpenSSH code-base into a ``clean'' version, which is kept as simple and platform-independent as possible, and a ``portable'' version, which can be compiled for a variety of versions of UNIX besides OpenBSD.
The OpenSSH web site (see Resources) is the place to go for the latest version of OpenSSH, both in source-code and RPM forms, and also for OpenSSL, which is required by OpenSSH.

 OpenSSH hits the fan | The Register
This mechanism, part of the SSH2 protocol, verifies a user's identity by generating a challenge and forcing the user to supply a number of responses.
However this mechanism is flawed in OpenSSH version 3.3 - it's possible for a remote attacker to send a specially-crafted reply that triggers an overflow.
OpenSSH is a free version of the SSH (Secure Shell) communications suite and is used as a secure replacement for protocols such as Telnet, Rlogin, Rsh, and Ftp.
