OpenSSH 6.5

A FREE version of the SSH protocol
OpenSSH project is a FREE version of the SSH protocol suite of network connectivity tools that increasing numbers of people on the Internet are coming to rely on.

What's New in This Release:
  • New features:
  • ssh(1), sshd(8): Add support for key exchange using elliptic-curve Diffie Hellman in Daniel Bernstein's Curve25519. This key exchange method is the default when both the client and server support it.
  • ssh(1), sshd(8): Add support for Ed25519 as a public key type. Ed25519 is a elliptic curve signature scheme that offers better security than ECDSA and DSA and good performance. It may be used for both user and host keys.
  • Add a new private key format that uses a bcrypt KDF to better protect keys at rest. This format is used unconditionally for Ed25519 keys, but may be requested when generating or saving existing keys of other types via the -o ssh-keygen(1) option. We intend to make the new format the default in the near future. Details of the new format are in the PROTOCOL.key file.
