+This is a Linux port of OpenBSD's excellent OpenSSH.
OpenSSH is based on the last free version of Tatu Ylonen's SSH with

-that OpenSSL is usually installed on Linux systems, a few replacements
-for OpenBSD library functions and the introduction of PAM support. This
-version tracks changes made to the OpenBSD CVS version.
