Secure shell (SSH) is a network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network by providing a secure channel to connect an SSH client with an SSH server. Through the use of public-key cryptography pairs, better known as keys, SSH authenticates a remote computer and allows it to authenticate users with public-private key pairs.
In Enterprise Application Access (EAA), SSH enables remote developers to access applications from a browser without exposing the desktop on the internet. SSH applications in EAA simplify key management because the private key of the pair lives on the connector and the administrator has the public key. The administrator can access an application without providing the public key to the user.
