Name        : openssh
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 5.0p1
Release     : 3.fc9
URL         : http://www.openssh.com/portable.html
Summary     : The OpenSSH implementation of SSH protocol versions 1 and 2
Description :
SSH (Secure SHell) is a program for logging into and executing
commands on a remote machine. SSH is intended to replace rlogin and
rsh, and to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and
arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's version of the last free version of SSH, bringing
it up to date in terms of security and features, as well as removing
all patented algorithms to separate libraries.

This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both.

Update Information:

* bugfix for regression in host based authentication.  * contains also improved
SELinux support which calls pam_selinux,  and requires updated pam package.  *
minor enhancement in the ssh/sshd configuration  * minor enhancement of the scp
manual page    Ssh daemon must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

* Wed May 21 2008 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> - 5.0p1-3
- pass the connection socket to ssh-keysign (#447680)
* Mon May 19 2008 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> - 5.0p1-2
- add LANGUAGE to accepted/sent environment variables (#443231)
- use pam_selinux to obtain the user context instead of doing it itself
- unbreak server keep alive settings (patch from upstream)
- small addition to scp manpage

  [ 1 ] Bug #443231 - ssh/sshd doesn't send/accept LANGUAGE environment variable, which causes unexpected behaviour
  [ 2 ] Bug #447680 - hostbased authentication fails with "cannot get sockname for fd" (ssh-keysign)
