Presentation: The Keys to SSH

The Secure Shell, or SSH, is a powerful communications tool most often used for securely accessing a command-line session on a remote system. As essential as that functionality is, there is much more to SSH than that. This talk will introduce SSH, and discuss integral applications including secure file transfer, accessing services behind a firewall, and running graphical applications software remotely. Specific topics include:
