Fedora Update Notification
2015-10-01 16:00:19.962392

Name        : openssh
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 7.1p1
Release     : 3.fc23
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 update provides mainly fixes in GSSAPI key exchange, but also provides full
relro for askpass helper and minor fixes for FIPS and SELinux integration.
