What does SSH mean?

SSH stands for Secure Shell. It is a secure network protocol that is used to establish a secure and encrypted connection between two computers.

SSH is commonly used to access remote servers or computers over an insecure network such as the Internet. It allows users to securely log in to a remote system, execute commands, and transfer files between the local and remote systems.

The SSH protocol provides strong encryption and authentication mechanisms to protect against eavesdropping, spoofing, and other types of attacks. It is widely used in the IT industry for remote system administration, server management, and other tasks that require secure remote access.

To use SSH, you need SSH client software on your local computer and SSH server software on the remote system you want to access. SSH is supported on most operating systems, including Linux, macOS, and Windows.
