openssh 1:7.3p1-1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

openssh (1:7.3p1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release (http://www.openssh.com/txt/release-7.3):
    - SECURITY: sshd(8): Mitigate a potential denial-of-service attack
      against the system's crypt(3) function via sshd(8).  An attacker could
      send very long passwords that would cause excessive CPU use in
      crypt(3).  sshd(8) now refuses to accept password authentication
      requests of length greater than 1024 characters.
    - SECURITY: ssh(1), sshd(8): Fix observable timing weakness in the CBC
      padding oracle countermeasures.  Note that CBC ciphers are disabled by
      default and only included for legacy compatibility.
    - SECURITY: ssh(1), sshd(8): Improve operation ordering of MAC
      verification for Encrypt-then-MAC (EtM) mode transport MAC algorithms
      to verify the MAC before decrypting any ciphertext.  This removes the
      possibility of timing differences leaking facts about the plaintext,
      though no such leakage has been observed.
    - ssh(1): Add a ProxyJump option and corresponding -J command-line flag
      to allow simplified indirection through a one or more SSH bastions or
      "jump hosts".
    - ssh(1): Add an IdentityAgent option to allow specifying specific agent
      sockets instead of accepting one from the environment.
    - ssh(1): Allow ExitOnForwardFailure and ClearAllForwardings to be
      optionally overridden when using ssh -W.
    - ssh(1), sshd(8): Implement support for the IUTF8 terminal mode as per
      draft-sgtatham-secsh-iutf8-00 (closes: #337041, LP: #394570).
    - ssh(1), sshd(8): Add support for additional fixed Diffie-Hellman 2K,
      4K and 8K groups from draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-kex-sha2-03.
    - ssh-keygen(1), ssh(1), sshd(8): Support SHA256 and SHA512 RSA
      signatures in certificates.
    - ssh(1): Add an Include directive for ssh_config(5) files (closes:
      #536031).
    - ssh(1): Permit UTF-8 characters in pre-authentication banners sent
      from the server.
    - ssh(1), sshd(8): Reduce the syslog level of some relatively common
      protocol events from LOG_CRIT.
    - sshd(8): Refuse AuthenticationMethods="" in configurations and accept
      AuthenticationMethods=any for the default behaviour of not requiring
      multiple authentication.
    - sshd(8): Remove obsolete and misleading "POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!"
      message when forward and reverse DNS don't match.
    - ssh(1): Deduplicate LocalForward and RemoteForward entries to fix
      failures when both ExitOnForwardFailure and hostname canonicalisation
      are enabled.
    - sshd(8): Remove fallback from moduli to obsolete "primes" file that
      was deprecated in 2001 (LP: #1528251).
    - sshd_config(5): Correct description of UseDNS: it affects ssh hostname
      processing for authorized_keys, not known_hosts.
    - sshd(8): Send ClientAliveInterval pings when a time-based RekeyLimit
      is set; previously keepalive packets were not being sent.
    - sshd(8): Whitelist more architectures to enable the seccomp-bpf
      sandbox.
    - scp(1): Respect the local user's LC_CTYPE locale (closes: #396295).
    - Take character display widths into account for the progressmeter
      (closes: #407088).

Binary packages built by this source

openssh-client: secure shell (SSH) client, for secure access to remote machines

 This is the portable version of OpenSSH, a free implementation of
 the Secure Shell protocol as specified by the IETF secsh working
 group.
 .
 Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine
 and for executing commands on a remote machine.
 It provides 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.
 It can be used to provide applications with a secure communication
 channel.
 .
 This package provides the ssh, scp and sftp clients, the ssh-agent
 and ssh-add programs to make public key authentication more convenient,
 and the ssh-keygen, ssh-keyscan, ssh-copy-id and ssh-argv0 utilities.
 .
 In some countries it may be illegal to use any encryption at all
 without a special permit.
 .
 ssh replaces the insecure rsh, rcp and rlogin programs, which are
 obsolete for most purposes.

openssh-client-dbgsym: debug symbols for package openssh-client

openssh-client-ssh1: secure shell (SSH) client for legacy SSH1 protocol

 This is the portable version of OpenSSH, a free implementation of
 the Secure Shell protocol as specified by the IETF secsh working
 group.
 .
 Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine
 and for executing commands on a remote machine.

 It can be used to provide applications with a secure communication
 channel.
 .
 This package provides the ssh1 and scp1 clients and the ssh-keygen1
 utility, all built with support for the legacy SSH1 protocol. This
 protocol is obsolete and should not normally be used, but in some cases
 there may be no alternative way to connect to outdated servers.
 .
 In some countries it may be illegal to use any encryption at all
 without a special permit.

 the Secure Shell protocol as specified by the IETF secsh working
 group.
 .
 Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine
 and for executing commands on a remote machine.

 is needed if you want to access your SSH server with SFTP. The SFTP
 server module also works with other SSH daemons like dropbear.
 .
 OpenSSH's sftp and sftp-server implement revision 3 of the SSH filexfer
 protocol described in:
 .
  http://www.openssh.com/txt/draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-02.txt
 .
 Newer versions of the draft will not be supported, though some features
 are individually implemented as extensions.

ssh: secure shell client and server (metapackage)

 This metapackage is a convenient way to install both the OpenSSH client
 and the OpenSSH server. It provides nothing in and of itself, so you
 may remove it if nothing depends on it.

ssh-askpass-gnome: interactive X program to prompt users for a passphrase for ssh-add

 This has been split out of the main openssh-client package so that
 openssh-client does not need to depend on GTK+.
 .
 You probably want the ssh-askpass package instead, but this is
 provided to add to your choice and/or confusion.

ssh-askpass-gnome-dbgsym: debug symbols for package ssh-askpass-gnome

 This has been split out of the main openssh-client package so that
 openssh-client does not need to depend on GTK+.
 .
 You probably want the ssh-askpass package instead, but this is
 provided to add to your choice and/or confusion.

ssh-krb5: secure shell client and server (transitional package)

 This is a transitional package depending on the regular Debian OpenSSH
 client and server, which now support GSSAPI natively. It will add the
 necessary GSSAPI options to the server configuration file. You can
 remove it once the upgrade is complete and nothing depends on it.
