Product Description

SSHield is a robust, open standards-based, small-footprint secure shell implementation for VxWorks 5.x and VxWorks AE. Derived from OpenSSH, SSHield integrates the core server and client components needed to implement a secure communications channel over insecure networks. Its unique, advanced features include a suite of secure applications, such as secure copy (scp), secure FTP (sftp and sftpd), a built-in version of cryptographic modules, and APIs for hardware acceleration of cryptography modules. It features enhanced memory management and CLI utility functions to get secure applications up and running quickly. Given its ability to scale out optional features, SSHield is ideally suited for use in low-resource embedded environments. SSHield is interoperable with standards-based SSH clients and servers on various operating platforms.
