Secure Shell Charter (SSH Charter)

Contributor(s): Daniel Singer

The Secure Shell Charter (SSH Charter) is a set of papers produced by the Secure Shell Working Group (SSH Working Group), an organization dedicated to updating and standardizing the popular Unix-based interface and protocol known as Secure Shell (SSH or secsh). The SSH Working Group is administered by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), an international body that defines standard network operating protocols.

SSH is used to securely access and remotely control computers and servers. SSH provides automatic encryption, authentication and compression, facilitating secure rlogin, file transfers and TCP/IP communications. The SSH Working Group endeavors to make certain that SSH is easy to implement at the application level without intensive user interaction. Other goals of the group are to ensure that SSH will always:

  • Provide optimum and continually updated protection against external threats
  • Function efficiently without a global key management or certificate infrastructure
  • Utilize existing certificate infrastructures when possible
  • Operate over insecure transport media
This was last updated in February 2007
