SSH Server Installation and Security in Linux: 10 Useful Steps

Linux Today News - Tue, 08/03/2021 - 09:30

Once the connection is established, SSH will then provide encrypted sessions for all public (unsecured) networks in a client-server architecture.

SSH was developed for the replacement of insecure remote protocols like Telnet, rlogin, and rsh. As we know the drawbacks of using these insecure protocols, using third-party packet capturing tools like tcpdump and Wireshark between the designated computers can reveal the password and exploit the systems easily.
