Summary: C library to authenticate in a simple manner to one or more SSH servers
The ssh library was designed to be used by programmers needing a working

client is made by the programmer. With libssh, you can remotely execute
programs, transfer files, use a secure and transparent tunnel for your

    * Thread safety when using different sessions at same time
    * Basic but correct SFTP implementation (secure file transfer)
    * RSA and DSS server public key supported
    * Compression support (with zlib)
    * Public key (RSA and DSS), password and keyboard-interactive
