Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Actually, it's a secure version of rsh (Remote SHell). As you get farther into Unix, you'll hear about "r" commands and "s" commands. The rcommands are remote copy (rcp), remote shell (rsh), remote login (rlogin). Great commands, except that they're clear text, so your passwd is exposed. The "s" commands are secure replacements for the "r" commands, encrypting all the communications.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. SSH requires users and machines to have public and private encryption keys. In order to jump from one machine to another, a key must (1) be listed as an acceptable key on the remote machine and (2) a password must be entered. On successful validation, you'll have an encrypted connection between both machines. This is a major improvement over rsh for a number of reasonsprevents a maninthemiddle attack, spoofing a machine's identity, etc.and is now the de facto standard.
