Decrypting sshv2


I'd like to ask if there are some public available tools that are able to decrypt sshv2 encrypted conversation, using the public/priv certificates used to crypt the connection.

Hey! There is something wrong with the link. Instead of directing me to the site it loops my connection. When I check the IP address it gives me 127.0.0.1.

What is wrong with this?

The link is not working. Want to see which tool really works. Really doubts it. The problem is not public key or private key. Each SSH session generate a symetric key, which is used to encrypt traffic in both way. Do not see a good way to recover the symetric key used in a recorded session.

There's no tool AFAIK: if there where we all would be in serious trouble forusing SSHv2 protocol.
The link works. It is a valid localhost record, a joke.
