Would this not be an ideal opportunity to implement this? Whilst I think there was a reasonable case for such features prior to the Debian OpenSSL vulnerability being identified, I would argue that this issue highlights the case. Comercial SSH already has such functionality - can anyone offer a view on how [well] it works? Tim -- Tim Brown <mailto:timb@...-dimension.org.uk> <http://www.nth-dimension.org.uk/>
