TuSSH for Palm guarantees secure data transmission

TuSSH is a fully-featured SSH client for Palm handhelds which makes use of the powerful SSH2 protocol to transmit data through an encrypted channel. PalmAddict's Quentin Jackson wrote a brilliant editorial how you could use TuSSH to securely backup your Palm handheld with a desktop PC over the air.

Does anyone know if there's also a usable Windows Mobile-based SSH client out there?

I'm not too familiar with all this, but if it's so secure, why isn't it integrated into every communication. The big grip about wifi, especially public wifi access points is security. Is the solution really this easy?

Yes and no. When you visit your bank's online accounting system you enter a securely encrypted channel which works very similar to SSH. However, since you're arbitrarily opening connections from your palm to various servers, building an encryption per communication would be silly (and most servers do not support it anyway). It would make more sense to encrypt -everything- you send or receive. But that means you are either dependent on your wifi access point (which could have security) or ... I wouldn't know what else. You could perhaps make a secure connection through SSH to a proxy server and internet through that. Yes, yes. That would work.

Bob, SSH(2) is part of every Linux distribution you download today. It's a protocol which offers virtually unlimited possibilities. You can for instance forward any connections through any ports to the remote connection in a secure tunnel... which makes it an easy way to tunnel your way out of a corporate firewall that only allows let's say access through port 80. You can also use SSH to tunnel connections that are normally not encrypted; for instance, let's say you run an e-mail server which also offers SSH access. You could then connet to your e-mail server through SSH, leave the connection open, and use your local e-mail client to pop your mail through that connection.

There are at least SSH solutions available for Windows. One is VShell by Vandyke the other is WinSSHD by Bitvise.
