SSH Tunneling


In SSH tunneling, an encrypted channel is created between an ssh client and an ssh server. Information flowing within the encrypted tunnel is secure and thus cannot be intercepted. This type of service is in particular used when running insecure protocols such as TightVNC. They can also be used to access internal networks and services running on them, bypass firewalls, as VPNs and as backdoors.
