News: IBM Internet Encryption Security Protocol for Java

  1. The Java based lightweight implementation of the Internet Engineering Task Force Secure Shell protocol provides secure remote log-in and other secure network services over an insecure network. The protocol has three major components: Transport Layer, User Authentication and Connection. The implementation is lightweight due to using IBM's CryptoLite for Java, efficient buffer and I/O handling, memory reuse to avoid excessive garbage collection, and threads are not used.

    It may be light-weight, but just try to figure out the licensing. All I could find was the "Request a License" link, and it takes you to the "Mother Of All Forms" which says:
    Your input from filling out this form will contribute towards determining if a commercial license can be offered the technology you select. The evaluation process typically takes at least 4-6 weeks. While we try to satisfy all requests, there is no guarantee that a commercial license can be made available.

    It needs to say very clearly what the license is, or even downloading it is dangerous from an IP point of view.

    Anyhow, I hope I just missed something very obvious and I can eat my words.

    To me it looks like they are just trying to collect information about you. You have to log in and all that. I also think that in order for downloading to have legal ripercussions it has to tell you "by downloading you are doing X".

  4. I have used JCraft's implementation:

    It works well and seems to be a bit more mature (IBM says they lack some features that JCraft provides). Moreover JCraft has a GNU license, so at least there are no question marks there.
