Optional dependencies

Bouncy Castle

Required mainly for writing keys to PEM files or for special keys/ciphers/etc. that are not part of the standard Java Cryptography Extension. See Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) Reference Guide for key classes and explanations as to how Bouncy Castle is plugged in (other security providers).

Caveat: If Bouncy Castle modules are registered, then the code will use its implementation of the ciphers, keys, signatures, etc. rather than the default JCE provided in the JVM.

Note:

  • The security provider can also be registered for keys/ciphers/etc. that are already supported by the standard JCE as a replacement for them.

  • The BouncyCastle code can also be used to load keys from PEM files instead or in parallel with the built-in code that already parses the standard PEM formats for the default JCE supported key types.

  • One can use the BouncyCastleKeyPairResourceParser to load standard PEM files instead of the core one - either directly or via SecurityUtils#setKeyPairResourceParser for global usage - even without registering or enabling the provider.

  • The required Maven module(s) are defined as optional so must be added as an explicit dependency in order to be included in the classpath:

    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.bouncycastle</groupId>
        <artifactId>bcpg-jdk15on</artifactId>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.bouncycastle</groupId>
        <artifactId>bcpkix-jdk15on</artifactId>
    </dependency>

NIO2 default socket factory replacements

Optional dependency to enable choosing between NIO asynchronous sockets (the default - for improved performance), and "legacy" sockets. Note: the required Maven module(s) are defined as optional so must be added as an explicit dependency in order to be included in the classpath.

MINA core

    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.apache.mina</groupId>
        <artifactId>mina-core</artifactId>
            <!-- see SSHD POM for latest tested known version of MINA core -->
        <version>2.0.17</version>
    </dependency>

    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.apache.sshd</groupId>
        <artifactId>sshd-mina</artifactId>
        <version>...same as sshd-core...</version>
    </dependency>

Netty

Another a NIO client server framework option that can be used as a replacement for the default NIO asynchronous sockets core implementation. This is also an optional dependency and must be add explicitly via the sshd-netty artifact.

    <dependency>
        <groupId>io.netty</groupId>
        <artifactId>netty-transport</artifactId>
        <version>...Netty version...</version>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>io.netty</groupId>
        <artifactId>netty-handler</artifactId>
        <version>...Netty version...</version>
    </dependency>

    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.apache.sshd</groupId>
        <artifactId>sshd-netty</artifactId>
        <version>...same as sshd-core...</version>
    </dependency>

ed25519-java

Required for supporting ssh-ed25519 keys and ed25519-sha-512 signatures. Note: the required Maven module(s) are defined as optional so must be added as an explicit dependency in order to be included in the classpath:

        <!-- For ed25519 support -->
    <dependency>
        <groupId>net.i2p.crypto</groupId>
        <artifactId>eddsa</artifactId>
    </dependency>

The code contains support for reading ed25519 OpenSSH formatted private keys.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
