SSH Tectia

Component Terminology

The following terms are used throughout the documentation.

client computer

The computer, typically a workstation, from which the Secure Shell connection is initiated.

Connection Broker

The Connection Broker is a shared component included in SSH Tectia Client and SSH Tectia Connector. All cryptographic operations and authentication-related tasks for SSH Tectia Client and Connector are handled by the Connection Broker.

host key pair

A public-key pair used to identify a Secure Shell server. The private key file is accessible only to the server. The public key file is distributed to users connecting to the server.

remote host

Refers to the other party of the connection, client computer or server computer, depending on the viewpoint.

Secure Shell client

A client-side application that uses the Secure Shell version 2 protocol, for example sshg3, sftpg3 or scpg3 of SSH Tectia Client, or SSH Tectia Connector.

Secure Shell server

A server-side application that uses the Secure Shell version 2 protocol.

server computer

The computer, typically a server, on which the Secure Shell service is running and to which the Secure Shell client is connected.

SFTP server

A server-side application that provides a secure file transfer service as a subsystem of the Secure Shell server.

SSH Tectia Client

A software component installed on a workstation. SSH Tectia Client provides secure interactive file transfer and terminal client functionality for remote users and system administrators to access and manage servers running SSH Tectia Server or other applications using the Secure Shell protocol. It also supports (non-transparent) static and dynamic tunneling of TCP-based applications.

SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack

With the optional EFT Expansion Pack, SSH Tectia Client can be expanded to perform enhanced file transfer (EFT) operations that require higher encryption performance, APIs for application-level integration, and additional reliability features such as checkpoint/restart. In addition, SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack incorporates an FTP-SFTP Conversion Module to facilitate secure replacement of FTP without the need to modify file transfer scripts or applications.

SSH Tectia client/server solution

The SSH Tectia client/server solution consists of three products, SSH Tectia Server, SSH Tectia Client, and SSH Tectia Connector.

SSH Tectia Connector

SSH Tectia Connector is a transparent end-user desktop client that provides dynamic tunneling of client/server connections without the need to re-configure the tunneled applications. It enables corporate end users to connect to business applications securely and automatically when an IP connection is established, while being fully transparent to the user. SSH Tectia Connector connects to SSH Tectia Server with Tunneling Expansion Pack and SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS.

SSH Tectia Server

SSH Tectia Server is a server-side component for SSH Tectia Connector and Client. There are four separate versions of the product available: SSH Tectia Server for secure system administration, SSH Tectia Server with EFT Expansion Pack for secure file transfer, SSH Tectia Server with Tunneling Expansion Pack for secure application connectivity, and SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS for IBM mainframes.

The basic SSH Tectia Server is available for Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms.

SSH Tectia Server with EFT Expansion Pack

SSH Tectia Server with EFT Expansion Pack is available for Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms. In addition to allowing normal Secure Shell connections, it supports the enhanced file transfer (EFT) features provided by SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack.

SSH Tectia Server with Tunneling Expansion Pack

SSH Tectia Server with Tunneling Expansion Pack is available for Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms. In addition to allowing normal Secure Shell connections, it supports the enhanced file transfer (EFT) features when used with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack and transparent application tunneling when used with SSH Tectia Connector.

SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS provides normal Secure Shell connections and supports the enhanced file transfer (EFT) features when used with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack and transparent application tunneling when used with SSH Tectia Connector.

tunneled application

TCP application secured by a Secure Shell connection.

user key pair

A public-key pair used to identify a Secure Shell user. The private key file is accessible only to the user. The public key file is copied to the servers the user wants to connect to.
