Description
The OpenSSH Client cryptographic module provides the client-side component for an SSH protocol version 2 protected communication channel. OpenSSH is the standard SSH implementation and shipped with RHEL 7. Its cryptographic mechanisms use the OpenSSL library in FIPS 140-2 mode.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 running on Dell PowerEdge R630 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5 with PAA
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 running on Dell PowerEdge R630 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5 without PAA (single-user mode)
