Simple yet robust and reliable SSH(2) and SFTP Server SilverSHielD application was designed to be a SSH (SSH2) and SFTP server.. It features 3 authentication types (including public-key auth with multiple keys per user) as well as a good SFTP subsystem and channel forwarding. And it has some nice security features such as a forced delay upon new connection (useful to defeat brute-force attacks) and a handy “tarpit” to ban attackers’ IPs. Also, it fully supports virtual folders with per-folder security. And its remote management console allows you to manage SilverSHielD from anywhere. Furthermore, you can use the Command-Line Interface (CLI) to remotely configure your SilverSHielD server and integrate its management into 3rd party management tools. NOTE: The Free edition of SilverSHielD can only be used for non-commercial uses. Authentication: · Keyboard-interactive · Password-based · Public-Key (supports multiple keys per user!)
