[back to package description]


Haskell implementation of openssh protocol primitives.

The openssh primitives are defined in RFC4251.

They are used by various parts of the openssh toolchain:


This library should be considered stable. Primitives will be added but will not removed.


Right now, these are the building blocks required to implement the higher level protocol components. They are useful, but the end goal is to produce public implementations of all the protocol, most importantly:

  • Key pair encode/decode.
  • Ceritificate encode/decode + signing.
  • Agent message protocol.
