Is openssl used by openssh?


If I am not running apache with SSL do I need openssl installed? I use openssh, so will ssh still work without ssl?

Apache uses mod_ssl along with openssl. You still need openssl for ssh.

From their installation instructions on their homepage: ftp://ftp.ca.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD...rtable/INSTALL

What if a machine is only using ssh for client activities (ie not running sshd)? Is openssl still needed then?

As far as I know, yes as the ssh client is bundled together for *nix clients. Is there a way around this, probably but I'm no programmer. What's the reason you don't want openssl? It's small and doesn't nearly make a dent in anything when it is, it's actually a good thing to have installed on a system, any system for not just ssh to work and function properly.

Ok, good point. I also was reading up at openssh.org and found everything is basically bundled together (client, daemon, keygen, etc) so I will just turn of the daemon but keep it installed.
