No matter how long I am immersed in a particular technology, I find I can learn something new everyday. That is perhaps one of the joys of being a citizen of geekdom.

I came across Brian Hatch’s piece at that is the beginning of an in-depth series on SSH. Mr. Hatch starts perfectly with a rundown on SSH host keys, usage, verification and configuration techniques.

You can never read enough about security and though I know someone else coined the phrase “paranoia breeds confidence” – it is a great mantra when protecting customer and corporate assets.

Hatch’s bio is quite nice, being the author of Hacking Linux Exposed, Second Edition among other publications.
