NetSieben Secure Shell C++ Library

NetSieben SSH Library is a Secure Shell client software written in C++. It utilizes Botan library for it's cryptographic functions, allowing for a large choice of algorithms to be used in SSH communications.

As a developer you may wish to integrate SSH client functionality into your applications. You can now use the NetSieben's API, instead of spending countless hours developing your own solution.

The SSH library was created by the NetSieben developers who, after researching the limited number of options available to them from both commercial and open source communities, found these solutions limited and at best, still in early stages of development.

Licensing

From a licensing perspective NetSieben distributes two different products, even though they essentially share the same code. The license option you choose is dependant on the intended use of the product.

The options are:

  • The Commercial License: This is for organizations who do not want to release the source code for their applications as open source / free software; in other words they do not want to comply with the GNU General Public License (GPL) or Q Public License. For more detail on the Commercial non-GPL License,or if you want more information on pricing, click here.

  • Non Commercial / Open Source License: NetSieben believes in contributing back to the open source community, thus it has released the SSH Library under Q Public License as it is defined by Trolltech AS of Norway. The Open Source License allows the user to use software under an open source / free software license, and distribute it freely. The software can be used at no charge with the condition that if the user uses the SSH Library in an application they wish to redistribute, then the complete source code for your application must be available and freely redistributable under reasonable conditions.*

    * There were some legal issues raised in the past in regards to linking GPL applications to QPL-covered libraries. This issue can easily be resolved by adding a few lines to legalese portion of your GPL-covered application, as described in this section of Free Software Foundation website.
