Some of the LSH-1.0 features are
o Strong encryption and data authentication.
o Strong host authentication using public key techniques.
o Spawning of remote shells, including pseudo tty support.
o Forwarding of TCP connections, in both directions.
o User authentication by either ordinary UN*X passwords
or public key techniques.
o Spawning of remote shells and commands, including pseudo tty support.
o Forwarding of TCP connections, in both directions.
o Zlib compression.
o Experimental support for Secure REmote Password (SRP) authentication.
o Experimental support for IPv6.
o A draft manual.
COMPATIBILITY AND PORTABILITY
LSH implements the secsh protocol as defined by the latest drafts from
the IETF secsh working group. It is also bug-compatible with
Datafellow's SSH2 products. Note that LSH is *not* compatible with
the IETF secsh working group. It interoperates with both SSH Inc's
SSH2 products and OpenSSH. Note that LSH is *not* compatible with
SSH1, although the lshd deamon can fall back to an SSH1 implementation
(e.g. OpenSSH or Datafellow's) when an ssh1 client connects.
LSH is reported to have worked at least once on GNU/Linux on Sparc and
Intel, FreeBSD, Solaris and IRIX. There may well be portability
problems left, please report them to me.

QUALITY
However, LSH does *NOT* try to provide any security on systems that
lack a good /dev/random. LSH-0.9 should be considered a beta release;
use on production systems is not recommended. LSH is provided AS IS,
ABSOLUTELY no GUARANTEES, etc. Please report any bugs you find.

PLANNED FEATURES
Some features that are planned but not yet implemented are
o Execution of remote commands (like rsh).
o A good, portable, (pseudo) randomness source.
o A "gateway" interface, to let external programs access an LSH
connection easily and securely.
