Hello All,

I would like to announce immediate availability of PKIX-SSH release 10.2.

With this version port to Android OS is considered complete. The version 
finalize support for virtual user account, adds relocatable location for 
configuration, relax directory permissions and ignore login records.

In addition is implemented work-around for servers with broken 
announcement of extension "server-sig-algs". It covers OpenSSH versions 
7.3 and 7.4. Issue with OpenSSH 7.3 is more serious as server lists only 
rsa-sha2-256 and rsa-sha2-512 as supported public-key algorithms. In 
result of this "/adaptive public key algorithm selection" functionality 
of PKIX-SSH skips all non-RSA identities (keys/).

New release adds certificates sent for an identity encoded in rfc6187 
format to verification process. This mean that there is no requirement 
client or server to keep intermediate certificates in X.509 store for 
those keys.

SecureBox (http://securebox.termoneplus.com/) is and Android application 
that packs additional commands for terminal applications.
Version 1.0.0 adds commands from PKIXSSH 10.2 and OpenSSL 1.1.0e.

Application is best integrated with terminal program TermOnePlus ( 
http://termoneplus.com/) - it require TermOnePlus permission "Override 
path" to be granted to it. Also "Override path" has to allowed in 
TermOnePlus preferences. Permission allows path to binaries exported by 
SecureBox to precede default path of terminal program.
