Telnet Clients and SSH Clients Explained

Telnet Client: A Telnet client is a program that allows you to connect to a Telnet Server. Once a Telnet connection has been started, you enter a username and password for authentication. However, Telnet communication is unencrypted and sends information in plaintext. This means that all data (including usernames and passwords) can be seen by anyone monitoring the network.

SSH Client: A SSH client is a program that allows you to connect to an SSH Server. SSH communication is encrypted and all information sent is safe from any attackers. The server must authenticate that it is the real server (and not a malicious server imitating the real server) the client is connecting to, and the client must confirm its identity. This process is all done with the use of public and private keys.

The GSW ConnectBot is capable of using Telnet and SSH protocols and capable of using the strongest SSH algorithms and Ciphers. Georgia SoftWorks recommends utilizing SSH connections. The number of security breaches increases every day. Even if you are not transmitting sensitive data, modification of your data during transport could be devastating.

Built-in Security Check - To ensure your connection is using up-to-date and safe algorithms and ciphers, GSW ConnectBot allows you to check the algorithms and ciphers being used in your Client/Server configuration.
