Technical Summary Secure Shell (SSH) is a protocol for secure remote login and other secure network services over an insecure network. This document describes a general purpose authentication method for the SSH protocol, suitable for interactive authentications where the authentication data should be entered via a keyboard. The major goal of this method is to allow the SSH client to support a whole class of authentication mechanisms without knowing the specifics of the actual authentication mechanisms. Working Group Summary The SecSH Working Group came to consensus on this document. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russell Housley for the IESG.
