lsh is a GPLed implementation of the Secure SHell protocol version 2
(SSH2), a secure replacement for rlogin, rsh, and rcp.
This package contains the lsh utilities. This includes programs such
as lsh-keygen, lsh-writekey (both programs for public/private key
generation), lsh-authorize (for automatic remote key authentication),
ssh-conv (utilities for converting between various public and private
key formats), and a number of other utilities for use with both the
lsh server and client.
In some countries it may be illegal to use any encryption at all
without a special permit.

lsh-utils (2.0.4-dfsg-10) unstable; urgency=low
* Default to deleting host key on purge (Closes: #670433). It's only a
host key, not significant amounts of user-generated data, so there's
no good reason that a purge shouldn't delete it.
* Correct misspelling of debconf key, which caused the host key never to
be deleted.
* Add Italian debconf localization. (Closes: #666425). Thanks to
Beatrice Torracca and the Italian localization team.
* Read settings from /etc/default/lsh-server in the config script
(Closes: #620809) and add an EXTRA_ARGS variable that can be used to
specify additional arguments to lshd (Closes: #592595).
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.
