SSH Encryption

The SSH Protocol is a network communications protocol allowing for secure remote login and other secure network services over an non-secured network. Unfortunately, thanks to significant increase in computer power and advances in decryption techniques, the majority of the original SSH algorithms are no longer secure. For this reason, not all SSH products and implementations are equally secure. Some still use the initial algorithms referenced in RFC 4252. These 11-year-old algorithms, once state-of-the-art, are simply outdated, dangerous to use and unfit for commercial deployment. Nothing can replace due diligence and software updates.

This is why the GSW ConnectBot shines - we watch current literature and discussions of cryptography to keep our software constantly updated and thus ensure that our customers are not using a cryptographic algorithm that has a recently found vulnerability or weakness.

The GSW ConnectBot client offers the strongest encryption available on the commercial market.

SSH is a protocol that uses various encryption ciphers not all SSH products are the same. The security of SSH is HIGHLY dependent on the encryption ciphers used. If old, outdated ciphers are used, the SSH is old and outdated. The GSW ConnectBot ONLY includes up-to-date ciphers that have no known security vulnerabilities or weaknesses.

What do our customers say about us?

"We picked GSW to use in our solutions because it is capable of very complex telnet interactions and it is easy to use"
Eric Zou / Hentor Technology, Ltd.

"For us, the Georgia SoftWorks software tested like it was telnet on steroids... I think the biggest advantage of this software is that it's designed specifically for the needs of mobile RF users..."
