OpenSSH

PowerShell v6 enables remoting over SSH between Linux and Windows machines. You can use remoting over SSH in any of these scenarios:

Windows – Linux
Linux – Windows
Windows – Windows
Linux – Linux

You can also establish traditional WinRM remoting sessions and send commands to a mixture of WinRM and SSH based sessions.

SSH connectivity is established using OpenSSH

A couple of new initiatives around OpenSSH need widespread participation.

First off – OpenSSH security testing

The PowerShell Team is getting OpenSSH production ready and as part of that are arranging for security testing. Details of how you can be involved are available from:

Secondly – installing OpenSSH involves a significant number of manual steps. An OpenSSH Universal Installer is available for testing
