VShell 2.6 Beta

Welcome to the VShell 2.6 Beta test. The major new features for 2.6 are:
  • FIPS -- VShell for Windows can now be installed in "FIPS Mode", which uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library and only allow FIPS-approved algorithms.
  • RADIUS -- VShell for Windows allows authentication to RADIUS servers using SecurID or other methods. RADIUS support is implemented through keyboard-interactive authentication.
  • VShellConfig -- A Windows command-line utility that allows editing of SFTP roots and access control lists (ACLs).
  • Deny Host File -- This feature has been added to reduce the impact of a dictionary attack. VShell for Windows now tracks failed authentications by IP address and can add these addresses to the Deny Host file after the specified threshold has been reached. Once an IP address has been added to the Deny Host file, VShell will not allow future connections from that address.
Although the new features have been decided for 2.6, you can still post feature requests and they will be considered for future versions of VShell

Please feel free to start new threads and to post polls. I'm looking forward to some good discussion about the betas. Thanks for joining us!
