OpenSSH now available in PowerShell in Cloud Shell

Saturday, February 3, 2018

PowerShell in Cloud Shell now includes the native Win32 OpenSSH client available for Windows and Windows Server.

OpenSSH is a collection of client/server utilities that enable secure remote login, remote file transfer, and public/private key pair management. Originating as part of the OpenBSD project and commonly used across the BSD, Linux, macOS, and Unix ecosystems, you can now use OpenSSH from PowerShell in Cloud Shell.

The SSH quickstart for PowerShell includes examples on how to create VMs with your SSH public key, as well as how to persist SSH configs and key files across Cloud Shell sessions.
