-What
-----
-
-"paramiko" is a combination of the esperanto words for "paranoid" and
-"friend". it's a module for python 2.2+ that implements the SSH2 protocol
-for secure (encrypted and authenticated) connections to remote machines.
-unlike SSL (aka TLS), SSH2 protocol does not require hierarchical
-certificates signed by a powerful central authority. you may know SSH2 as
-the protocol that replaced telnet and rsh for secure access to remote
-shells, but the protocol also includes the ability to open arbitrary
-channels to remote services across the encrypted tunnel (this is how sftp
-works, for example).
-
-it is written entirely in python (no C or platform-dependent code) and is
-released under the GNU LGPL (lesser GPL).
-
-the package and its API is fairly well documented in the "doc/" folder
-that should have come with this archive.
-
-
-Requirements
-------------
-
- - python 2.3 or better <http://www.python.org/>
- (python 2.2 is also supported, but not recommended)
- - pycrypto 2.1 or better <https://www.dlitz.net/software/pycrypto/>
-
-If you have setuptools, you can build and install paramiko and all its
-dependencies with this command (as root)::
-
- easy_install ./
-
-
-Portability
------------
-
-i code and test this library on Linux and MacOS X. for that reason, i'm
-pretty sure that it works for all posix platforms, including MacOS. it
-should also work on Windows, though i don't test it as frequently there.

-Bugs & Support
---------------
-
-there's a launchpage page for paramiko, with a bug tracker:
-
- https://launchpad.net/paramiko/
-
-this is the primary place to file and browse bug reports.
-
-there's also a low-traffic mailing list for support and discussions:
-
- http://www.lag.net/mailman/listinfo/paramiko
-
-
-Demo
-----
-
-several demo scripts come with paramiko to demonstrate how to use it.
-probably the simplest demo of all is this::
-
- import paramiko, base64
- key = paramiko.RSAKey(data=base64.decodestring('AAA...'))
- client = paramiko.SSHClient()
- client.get_host_keys().add('ssh.example.com', 'ssh-rsa', key)
- client.connect('ssh.example.com', username='strongbad', password='thecheat')
- stdin, stdout, stderr = client.exec_command('ls')
- for line in stdout:
- print '... ' + line.strip('\n')
- client.close()
-
-...which prints out the results of executing ``ls`` on a remote server.
-(the host key 'AAA...' should of course be replaced by the actual base64
-encoding of the host key. if you skip host key verification, the
-connection is not secure!)
-
-the following example scripts (in demos/) get progressively more detailed:
-
-:demo_simple.py:
- calls invoke_shell() and emulates a terminal/tty through which you can
- execute commands interactively on a remote server. think of it as a
- poor man's ssh command-line client.
-
-:demo.py:
- same as demo_simple.py, but allows you to authenticiate using a
- private key, attempts to use an SSH-agent if present, and uses the long
- form of some of the API calls.
-
-:forward.py:
- command-line script to set up port-forwarding across an ssh transport.
- (requires python 2.3.)
-
-:demo_sftp.py:
- opens an sftp session and does a few simple file operations.
-
-:demo_server.py:
- an ssh server that listens on port 2200 and accepts a login for
- 'robey' (password 'foo'), and pretends to be a BBS. meant to be a
- very simple demo of writing an ssh server.
-
-
-Use
----
-
-the demo scripts are probably the best example of how to use this package.
-there is also a lot of documentation, generated with epydoc, in the doc/
-folder. point your browser there. seriously, do it. mad props to
-epydoc, which actually motivated me to write more documentation than i
-ever would have before.
-
-there are also unit tests here::
-
- $ python ./test.py
-
-which will verify that most of the core components are working correctly.
