Microsoft to support SSH in Windows #InfoSec # Crypto

Microsoft finally is planning to support SSH in Windows and the company’s engineers also will contribute to the OpenSSH project.

While SSH has been a popular tool for remote login and command execution on many Unix and linux systems for years, Windows has not supported SSH by default, for a variety of reasons. Microsoft has had its own solutions on this front, but SSH has become the default standard for secure remote operations over the years. Customers have been asking Microsoft to add default support for the protocol, and the company now has decided to make the move.
