This is the port of OpenBSD's excellent OpenSSH[0] to Linux and other
Unices.
-OpenSSH is based on the last free version of Tatu Ylonen's SSH with
-all patent-encumbered algorithms removed (to external libraries), all
-known security bugs fixed, new features reintroduced and many other
-clean-ups. More information about SSH itself can be found in the file
-README.Ylonen. OpenSSH has been created by Aaron Campbell, Bob Beck,
-Markus Friedl, Niels Provos, Theo de Raadt, and Dug Song. It has a

This port consists of the re-introduction of autoconf support, PAM
support (for Linux and Solaris), EGD[1]/PRNGD[2] support and replacements
for OpenBSD library functions that are (regrettably) absent from other
-unices. This port has been best tested on Linux, Solaris, HPUX, NetBSD
+unices. This port has been best tested on Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, NetBSD
and Irix. Support for AIX, SCO, NeXT and other Unices is underway.
This version actively tracks changes in the OpenBSD CVS repository.
