Concepts/Security types/ Setup: OpenSSH/sshd/ssh/scp/sftp


I will appreciate some quick help on the understanding of following ASAP on Red Hat Linux 9.0. Thanks for your help in advance.

1. defining security in general i.e. the general concept of security
2. Security types i.e. as used in the real-world
3. Setup of OpenSSH, features and benefits over "clear text" utilities
4. How to run processes and programs securely and remotely (ssh, scp, sftp)
5. MD5 Encryption and Verification
6. Setup sshd process and open firewall to allow ssh traffic

The members here at LinuxQuestions are happy to answer questions about your usage and understanding of Linux and all kinds of Linux-related areas, but the forum rules explicitly bar posters from soliciting answers to homework problems. The proper moderator has been notified.

In the future, you may want to start homework assignments well in advance so that you have ample time to research the answers. If, for example, you have difficulty configuring or understanding OpenSSH, LQ members will be happy to assist with your relevant and well formulated questions. You should not, however, ask questions until you've actually done your own research (Google is a great tool) and actually attempted configuration on your own.

Ultimately, this policy benefits everyone. It benefits you, because you learn far more about Linux (or any subject) by trying to figure things out for yourself. It benefits the members who actively answer questions, because they don't have the answer the same basic questions over and over, and it benefits the community by keeping the over all discussions interesting and fresh, rather than a daily repeat of the same questions and answers.

Oh, and by the way selling your products or services on LQ is also forbidden by the forum rules. Follow the appropriate contact if you wish to purchase advertising space.

Sorry, about the "selling" thing,
I'm a programmer not a freelancing consultant :-), but you could not know that.
This was the basic answer we gave people, with these kind of obvious questions while I was active as a memeber of The Linux Gazette Answergang.
It was meant as tounge in cheeck.

Please don't post homework questions. Try to make future questions more specific (and non-homework related).
Thank you.

Feel free to email me if you'd like to have this thread re-opened.

--EDIT--

Thread reopened.

Interesting thread
As it's been re-opened, I have to say that those are 6 open ended qns; you could write a book to answer them fully (or several).
I would certainly recommend reading the Sticky threads in this forum eg Security References & Newbie HOWTOs threads.

The advantage of ssh/scp/sftp over the plain text equivalents is that the sessions, passwds are encrypted.

If you have more specific qns, feel free to post them
