Microsoft is planning to support Secure Shell protocol and Shell Session (SSH) in Windows and the company’s engineers also will contribute to the OpenSSH project. While SSH has been a popular tool for remote login and command execution on many Unix and Linux systems for years, Windows has not supported SSH by default, for a variety of reasons. Microsoft has had its own solutions on this front, but SSH has become the default standard for secure remote operations over the years. Customers have been asking Microsoft to add default support for the protocol, and the company now has decided to make the move. SSH solutions are available today by a number of vendors and communities, especially in the Linux world. However, there are limited implementations customers can deploy in Windows production environments. After reviewing these alternatives, the PowerShell team realized the best option will be to adopt an industry proven solution while providing tight integration with Windows; a solution that Microsoft will deliver in Windows while working closely with subject matter experts across the planet to build it.
