    Name        : openssh
    Product     : Fedora 30

    Summary     : An open source implementation of SSH protocol version 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.
    
    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.
