SSH Communications' Secure Shell HealthCheck

Since news of the Shellshock Bash vulnerability broke, revelations about the impact of the bug have grown, including reports of lost or stolen Secure Shell (SSH) keys being used to access sensitive information covertly. In reaction to Shellshock, SSH Communications Security announced the release of Secure Shell HealthCheck, a solution for discovering major risk and compliance violations related to all aspects of SSH in data-center environments. SSH HealthCheck helps to reduce the risk of failed audits and cyber-security breaches from hackers or malicious insiders. SSH Communications Security, whose chief innovation officer is SSH inventor Tatu Ylönen, recommends properly scanning and managing SSH keys, including comparing and auditing them against approved keys. The company claims that only its tools can achieve this.
