"Van Dyke Technologies, Inc., a provider of quality Internet software, announced today the official release of SecureCRT 3.1 for Windows. Interoperability with new Secure Shell version 2 (SSH2) servers leads the list of product enhancements."

"The OpenSSH server, currently version 2.1.1, implements both SSH1 and SSH2 protocols on BSD and Linux, as well as several commercial UNIX platforms. OpenSSH was developed by a group of programmers under the OpenBSD project. The server supports SSH2 features such as multiple authentication methods, including public key authentication with up to 1024-bit DSA security."

"The OpenSSH server is a big step in the development of the SSH protocol," said Jeff P. Van Dyke, president of Van Dyke Technologies, Inc. "Giving users a choice of servers is important in making SSH a widespread security solution. Van Dyke Technologies will work to make sure SecureCRT is compatible with OpenSSH software."

"We welcome Van Dyke's efforts at interoperability," said OpenSSH project leader Theo de Raadt. "We're trying to make sure that SSH is deployed universally on the Internet, and Van Dyke's good work in the Windows market really fills a gap in our coverage. This kind of close collaboration within the SSH community is what will get us to the official standards that we need."
