PuTTY not printing a password expiration warning from a SunSSH server

I think I saw that before but it popped up now again. One of our customers complains that PuTTY (did you know that PuTTY runs on Symbian as well?) is not displaying a warning message about a password expiration when run against the SunSSH server.[Read More]

The ChrootDirectory option resynced to SunSSH

I resynced the ChrootDirectory option from OpenSSH to SunSSH, and pushed the change to the repository today. It wasn't a straightforward resync since we have different privilege separation code. I also found a few very minor issues in the OpenSSH code, and filed bugs with patches (1562, 1564, and 1566). [Read More]

On SunSSH Versioning

We admit that SunSSH versioning could have been more helpful during the last few years. However, there were a few good reasons for the fact that the version number hasn't changed much... [Read More]

SunSSH with HW crypto for S10U7

As noted in the SunSSH with HW crypto announcement in September we worked on backporting this to S10. I'm glad to say that this week the code went to the S10U7 code base which, as of now, seems to be released during 2Q/2009 (Apr-Jun). Also, the patch(es) for this RFE for other S10 updates should be released at the time when S10U7 is out.

SunSSH with HW crypto support

On Friday Sep 12, I integrated 6445288 ssh needs to be OpenSSL engine aware project which will be released together with Nevada 99. The project was targeted at UltraSPARC T2 platform (AKA Niagara 2) because it provides a hardware acceleration of symmetric encryption algorithms that can be used to speed up applications like SSH. Platforms without any hardware acceleration for symmetric ciphers are uneffected. If you have a Niagara 2 and will use the new code, you will see the difference without changing your configuration. It will work out of box. [Read More]

X.509v3 support for SunSSH design document

I've been working for the past few weeks on a project that should provide X.509 support for server authentication and user public key authentication to SunSSH. At present, I've finished the design document and I also have a prototype version that doesn't have all the requested functionality but works well enough to confirm that it can be implemented according to the current design.[Read More]
