This document describes the architecture of a Suite B compliant
implementation of the Secure Shell Transport Layer Protocol and the
Secure Shell Authentication Protocol.  Suite B Secure Shell makes use
of the elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) key agreement, the elliptic
curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA), the Advanced Encryption
Standard running in Galois/Counter Mode (AES-GCM), two members of the
SHA-2 family of hashes (SHA-256 and SHA-384), and X.509
certificates.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
