Name        : openssh
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 6.1p1
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://www.openssh.com/portable.html
Summary     : An open source implementation of SSH protocol versions 1 and 2
Description :
SSH (Secure SHell) is a program for logging into and executing
commands on a remote machine. SSH is intended to replace rlogin and
rsh, and to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and
arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's version of the last free version of SSH, bringing
it up to date in terms of security and features.

This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both.

Update Information:

This is update to the latest upstream release. There is also changed behavior for chrooted user, see bug #830237. There is no more
SELinux chroot_user_t type and it's up to an administrator to use right SELinux user for his users  and we strongly recommend to use
the guest_u user.
There is also implemented DIR: kerberos cache type.
