Securing SSH Servers with Banyan

  • Updated on Jun 01, 2023

This article describes features that are only available in the Banyan Enterprise edition and Banyan Unlimited edition.


Secure Shell (SSH) is the secure industry-standard program for accessing remote Linux servers. The SSH protocol runs on top of TCP/IP; the standard TCP port for SSH is 22. End users interact with SSH via dedicated client software, typically the openssh client.

For connectivity, Banyan treats SSH just as it does any other TCP Service, using Mutually Authenticated TLS (MTLS) flows to provide secure zero-trust access.

Banyan can be also configured to enable SSH certificate authentication using an SSH CA.
