"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
"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."
