SSH (Secure Shell) is a program that allows users to connect to a remote computer securely. It uses various encryption methods to ensure that data is not intercepted while in transit. Programmers and system administrators commonly use SSH to access remote computers, but it can also be used for general computing tasks such as transferring files or accessing applications. SSH is typically used on Linux systems but is also available for Windows and macOS. Users need to generate a public/private key pair to use SSH. The private key is stored on the user’s local computer, while the public key is uploaded to the remote server. When the user attempts to connect to the server, the server checks the user’s public key against the list of authorized keys. The user is granted access to the server if there is a match.
