Draft RFC for new version of SSH protocol, especially key handling


Not sure if this should be here or 'General' (Mods; its up to you), but I thought people might want to read and possibly submit comments to the IETF.

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/dra...include_text=1

Enjoy

PS: Can A Mod fix the typo in title please: s/oh/of/

I've read it and I don't much agree with it (although it does state some facts accurately they are obvious ones). In fact I suspect the main purpose is to promote a commercial SSH version over OpenSSH (strangely described as "proprietary" in the doc).

Also it's about key management not the networking SECSH protocol.

You mean
Quote:
OpenSSH also implements its own proprietary certificate format;
I think they are just calling the certificate format proprietary (meaning it is not standard X.509), not OpenSSH as a whole.

Yeah, I find the thread title a bit misleading too.
