Maverick Legacy Client 1.7.27

Release Notes

JADAPTIVE Limited is pleased to announce the release of Maverick Legacy Client 1.7.27. This is now available for download from your account. Here are some of the notable updates you will find in this release.

New Algorithms

We have implemented the chacha20poly1305@openssh.com cipher and curve25519-sha2@libssh.org key exchange.

Managed Security

We have introduced a new framework for security algorithms, allowing the developer to choose a minimal level of security from WEAK, STRONG, and PARANOID levels.

For the client API, this also includes a “Managed Instance” option that provides some resilience against algorithm problems and key exchange issues. When a problem occurs during the key exchange, the API will remove the problematic algorithm and retry the connection with another algorithm.

For more details, please see our Journal post at https://www.jadaptive.com/managed-security-in-our-java-ssh-apis/

Server-side Directory Filtering

Reading large directories can be a problem with SFTP as there is no mechanism to filter a list when performing a directory listing. We have implemented our own SFTP extension in the client and server APIs to support server-side filtering.
