Apache SSHD Java Library in First Release

Jun 19, 2009

Apache SSHD, a Java implementation of the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol is available in its first version 0.1.0.

The SSH Daemon (SSHD) library serves for programming both SSH servers and clients. Apache developers do, however, warn that the client side is not quite stable and major changes to the API are in the works.

The Apache project doesn't consider the software to rival openSSH, just as a way to integrate SSH functions into Java. A short tutorial on the project's webpage shows how to embed SSHD in an application as an SSH server in a few minutes.

Apache SSHD relies on the Multipurpose Infrastructure for Network Applications (MINA) network app framework, Apache MINA 2.0 download is available under Apache licensing.
