OpenSSH OS X

What is OpenSSH

OpenSSH is a cost free version of the SSH protocol suite. Many of the users who utilize telnet, ftp, rlogin and other programs may not realize that their passwords are transmitted in plain text (unencrypted) across the Internet. The OpenSSH suite encrypts all data that comes to and from your computer including passwords.

The OpenSSH suite includes many functions and programs. SSH replaces rlogin and telnet, sftp replaces the plain ftp program and rcp is replaced with a enhanced scp program.

Luckily enough Apples new operating system, Mac OS X offers Mac users the ability to utilize this suite of security enhanced software.
