Name        : python-paramiko

Summary     : SSH2 protocol library for python
Description :
Paramiko (a combination of the esperanto words for "paranoid" and "friend") is
a module for python 2.3 or greater that implements the SSH2 protocol for secure
(encrypted and authenticated) connections to remote machines. Unlike SSL (aka
TLS), the SSH2 protocol does not require heirarchical certificates signed by a
powerful central authority. You may know SSH2 as the protocol that replaced
telnet and rsh for secure access to remote shells, but the protocol also
includes the ability to open arbitrary channels to remote services across an
encrypted tunnel. (This is how sftp works, for example.)

Update Information:

v1.10.1 (5th Apr 2013)

* #142: (Fabric #811) SFTP put of empty file will still return the attributes
  of the put file. Thanks to Jason R. Coombs for the patch.
* #154: (Fabric #876) Forwarded SSH agent connections left stale local pipes
  lying around, which could cause local (and sometimes remote or network)
  resource starvation when running many agent-using remote commands. Thanks to
  Kevin Tegtmeier for catch & patch.

v1.10.0 (1st Mar 2013)

* #66: Batch SFTP writes to help speed up file transfers. Thanks to Olle
  Lundberg for the patch.
* #133: Fix handling of window-change events to be on-spec and not
  attempt to wait for a response from the remote sshd; this fixes problems with
  less common targets such as some Cisco devices. Thanks to Phillip Heller for
  catch & patch.
* #93: Overhaul SSH config parsing to be in line with `man ssh_config` (& the
  behavior of `ssh` itself), including addition of parameter expansion within
  config values. Thanks to Olle Lundberg for the patch.
* #110: Honor SSH config `AddressFamily` setting when looking up local
  host's FQDN. Thanks to John Hensley for the patch.
* #128: Defer FQDN resolution until needed, when parsing SSH config files.
  Thanks to Parantapa Bhattacharya for catch & patch.
* #102: Forego random padding for packets when running under `*-ctr` ciphers.
  This corrects some slowdowns on platforms where random byte generation is
  inefficient (e.g. Windows). Thanks to  `@warthog618` for catch & patch, and
  Michael van der Kolff for code/technique review.
* #127: Turn `SFTPFile` into a context manager. Thanks to Michael Williamson
  for the patch.
* #116: Limit `Message.get_bytes` to an upper bound of 1MB to protect against
  potential DoS vectors. Thanks to `@mvschaik` for catch & patch.
* #115: Add convenience `get_pty` kwarg to `Client.exec_command` so users not
  manually controlling a channel object can still toggle PTY creation. Thanks
  to Michael van der Kolff for the patch.
* #71: Add `SFTPClient.putfo` and `.getfo` methods to allow direct
  uploading/downloading of file-like objects. Thanks to Eric Buehl for the
* #113: Add `timeout` parameter to `SSHClient.exec_command` for easier setting
  of the command's internal channel object's timeout. Thanks to Cernov Vladimir
  for the patch.
* #94: Remove duplication of SSH port constant. Thanks to Olle Lundberg for the
* #80: Expose the internal "is closed" property of the file transfer class
  `BufferedFile` as `.closed`, better conforming to Python's file interface.
  Thanks to `@smunaut` and James Hiscock for catch & patch.
