Secure Shell Packages and Configuration Files

With the introduction of the OpenSSH implementation of Secure Shell, Oracle Solaris provides four Secure Shell packages:


Components for the sunssh implementation


Components for the openssh implementation


Secure Shell utilities that the two implementations share


SMF service and Secure Shell system configuration files that the two implementations share

    SunSSH and OpenSSH share the following Secure Shell system configuration files:

  • /etc/ssh/ssh_config

  • /etc/ssh/sshd_config

  • /etc/ssh/moduli

Implementation-specific man pages are installed with each package.
