Summary

Summary

The Secure Shell protocol is a flexible and powerful tool; this tutorial has only scratched the surface of its capabilities. SSH can be used in many different ways, including but not limited to: securing remote X11 sessions, providing encryption for services not designed with such protection, the use of public keys to provide seamless login and the secure execution of specific commands, and so on.

OpenSSH can be extended to include Kerberos authentication, AFS token passing, Smart Card support, and a number of other related technologies. For more information about using these and other features with OpenSSH, refer to the items listed in the references and resources section on the next panel.
