Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-0644
2008-01-15 22:17:09
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : python-paramiko
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.7.1
Release     : 3.fc8
URL         : http://www.lag.net/paramiko/
Summary     : A SSH2 protocol library for python
Description :
Paramiko (a combination of the esperanto words for "paranoid" and "friend") is
a module for python 2.3 or greater that implements the SSH2 protocol for secure
(encrypted and authenticated) connections to remote machines. Unlike SSL (aka
TLS), the SSH2 protocol does not require heirarchical certificates signed by a
powerful central authority. You may know SSH2 as the protocol that replaced
telnet and rsh for secure access to remote shells, but the protocol also
includes the ability to open arbitrary channels to remote services across an
encrypted tunnel. (This is how sftp works, for example.)
