Paramiko Python

Paramiko Python

Paramiko is a Python library that remotely connects to another computer using SSHv2 (Secure Shell 2), an advanced SSH version. It is a network protocol to make a secure connection between two computers.

It provides both client and server facilities. We can transfer files remotely from one computer to another using SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) and SCP (Secure Copy Protocol).

We can use SSHv2 to implement all well-known hash algorithms and ciphers in our programs.
