Tectia SSH

Tectia is a software solution that secures end-to-end communication within corporate networks but most importantly secure network services over untrusted networks like the Internet.

Users can establish secure connections to remote hosts, execute commands on the remote hosts securely, copy remote files securely, and forward X11 sessions (on Unix). Arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded (tunneled) over a secure channel, enabling secure application connections, for example, to an e-mail service. Tectia products are based on Secure Shell (SSH) technology originally developed by the founders of SSH Communications Security.

Tectia utilizes client-server architecture. By default, the server listens to TCP port 22, which has been officially assigned for Secure Shell, and clients initiate connections to this port.



Secure File Transfer

The Tectia client/server solution allows organizations to replace plaintext file transfer protocol (FTP) connections with secure file transfers in cross-platform environments. File transfers can be secured by applying the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

Secure Application Connectivity

The Tectia client/server solution can be used to replace unsecured TCP-based terminal connections (for example, Telnet) to business-critical enterprise applications. Through strong encryption and data integrity, the Tectia client/server solution protects sensitive data and passwords against unauthorized access, facilitating compliance with regulations and best practices. Strong authentication of users is supported through broad integration with third-party authentication systems.

Solution Features

The Tectia client/server solution is an ideal lightweight solution for secure file transfer, secure remote logins for system administration purposes, and secure use of e-mail and other business applications. The Tectia client/server solution is available for most Unix and Linux platforms (including Linux on IBM System z), for Microsoft Windows, and for IBM mainframes.

High Performance

Tectia applies third-generation Secure Shell protocol implementation, SSH G3, which has been optimized for higher performance in demanding file transfer and application tunneling environments. The SSH G3 architecture provides unparalleled Secure Shell encryption throughput and scalability for large organizations.

Ease of Use

Tectia client/server solution is easy to install, and it can be configured using a GUI or by editing an XML configuration file.


The Tectia client/server solution provides mutual authentication for the server and the client user. The Tectia client components authenticate the server and the Tectia Server authenticates the user's identity.
