Name        : openssh
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 7.2p1
Release     : 2.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 new upstream release of openssh-7.2p1. This is mostly
bugfix release, but note that:  * the minimum modulus size supported for diffie-
hellman-group-exchange was increased to 2048 bits, * several legacy
cryptographic algorithms and MD5-based and truncated HMAC algorithms were
disabled on client side.  More information about this release can be found in
[upstream release notes](http://www.openssh.com/txt/release-7.2). Few more notes
