    SSL and SSH :: Socket

    Hello.

    I have experience working with SSL and limited experience with SSH. SSL is a layer over an existing socket. SSH is a protocol.

    What is more secure for client/server applications on various platforms?

    Thanks,

    Kuphryn

    SSL is also a protocol.

    Sorry, I don't know which is more secure, SSL or SSH? I think SSL was designed to be more or less transparent for sockets, providing both encryption and strong authentication (if SSL client auth is used), while SSH is more for strong authentication.
