In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security
In 1995 there was a password-sniffing attack on the network of the University of Helsinki in Finland, and this lead a researcher there, Tatu Ylönen, to create the first SSH implementation. SSH is an acronym for Secure Shell, and expresses the idea that you can securely log in and get a shell on a remote server. This was initially released as free software, but in later versions he took it proprietary. But the developers at OpenBSD decided that a free software implementation was needed, and they created OpenSSH, which is the basis for most implementations today.

portable version of OpenSSH
Actually the portable version of OpenSSH is needed on every platform other than OpenBSD, not just not-unixoid ones ;)

This could be a very fruitful series.
ssh is one of those swiss army knives that most people just use for the blade. I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going. There's a lot of potential uses to cover. Klaatu already added an episode talking about ssh_config and there are lots of useful shortcuts one can include from that alone. So, I hope that more people (including you Ahuka) keep this going.
As always, thank you for a great show!

I'm glad you enjoyed this introductory episode. I have recorded and uploaded several more, and I am not done. And Klaatu has also sent in an ssh show, so there is plenty to go around.
