SecureCRT protects passwords, user accounts, and data, combining rock-solid terminal emulation with the strong encryption, broad authentication options, and data integrity of the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. SecureCRT provides versatile solutions for business, network management, information security, and development tasks, from accessing host-based applications and administering servers to securely accessing behind-the-firewall network resources.
SecureCRT has a multi-session tabbed interface with extensive session management features. Customization options include toolbars, menus, keymaps, and login scripts, as well as fonts, cursors, and color schemes. Named sessions and firewalls let you create session-specific configurations. An optional "FIPS Mode" uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library and only allows FIPS-approved algorithms. Other features include the Activator tray utility to minimize desktop clutter, auto logon, printing, Emacs mode, and SOCKS firewall support. Emulations include VT100, VT102, VT220, ANSI, SCO ANSI, Wyse 50/60, Xterm, and Linux console - all with ANSI color. Multibyte character sets are supported for Japanese, Korean, and Chinese, as are scalable line-drawing fonts.
SecureCRT supports SSH1, SSH2, Telnet, RLogin, Serial, and TAPI protocols and authentication via password, public-key, X.509 certificates, and Kerberos v5 via GSSAPI. Ciphers include AES, 3DES, RC4, Blowfish, and Twofish. ActiveX scripting support saves time by automating routine configuration tasks. Securely transfer files using the VCP or VSFTP command-line applications or Zmodem within SecureCRT. The included VSH program lets you make SSH2 connections from the command line.
SecureCRT and the SecureFX file transfer client can share global and session options and host key database so configuring a connection only needs to be done once.
