Session Characteristics in Solaris Secure Shell

The server-side behavior of the sshd daemon is controlled by keyword settings in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. For example, the sshd_config file controls which types of authentication are permitted for accessing the server. The server-side behavior can also be controlled by the command-line options when the sshd daemon is started.

The behavior on the client side is controlled by Solaris Secure Shell keywords in this order of precedence:

For example, a user can override a system-wide configuration Ciphers setting that prefers aes128–ctr by specifying -c aes256–ctr,aes128-ctr,arcfour on the command line. The first cipher, aes256–ctr, is now preferred.
