Looking for Good SSH implementation documentation

Posted 18 December 2017 - 05:40 AM

Good Morning,
I am working on an embedded project and I have telnet up and working, but I want to get SSH up as well. I cannot seem to find any good documentation on the packet flow, and key generation procedures for SSH. I will be building it from the ground up so i will need full documentation. The first things I will need are a good packet flow diagram or document, and possibly some example code for key generation and packet encryption. Does anyone have a good source on this? I have not been able to find anything good via my normal means, and the RFC's make me want to pull my hair out.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I was under the impression that the RFCs were the definitive source.

I can think of three reasonable places to look, depending on who you are and what you're looking for. Those would be the RFCs, the source code for some existing implementation, or some textbook on networking.

Website for the book: SSH: The Secure Shell The Definitive Guide
and within that website, the list of essential RFCs in priority and/or recommended reading order.
