Add support for secure protocols SSH and SFTP
Mozilla should have support for secure protocols such as ssh and sftp. Clicking on ssh://unixbox should either open a terminal window with ssh or should be implemented throught xmlterm. Clicking sftp://server should work like the ftp client currently does. Basically we need some glue between ssl, xmlterm, and openssh.
Moving to m30 and assigning to Security: Crypto.
Component: Browser-General → Security: Crypto
Target Milestone: --- → M30
Reassigning to crypto owner.

Reassigning all https/cartman/security bugs to valeski. He will be finding new owner(s). This shift is so that I can focus on embedding issues. If the new owner has questions that can not be resovled, I may be able to lend a (quick) hand. over to valeski....

sftp and ssh are not currently IANA-registered URL scheme names. Relevant documents: http://www.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/url-schemes http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1738.txt http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2717.txt
Changing product from Browser:Security:Crypto --> PSM 2.0

Mass assigning QA to ckritzer.

The most recent SFTP Internet-Draft (<http://www.snailbook.com/docs/sftp.txt)> appears to have expired on April 1, 2002. Anyone have any more recent documentation?
Summary: [RFE] Add support for secure protocols: ssh, sftp → Add support for secure protocols SSH and SFTP
Updated URL for assigned URI shemes: http://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes
Draft for SSH (expires July 2004) http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-05.txt Draft for new URIs (expires any day now) http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-secsh-scp-sftp-ssh-uri-01.txt
this feature is all over the forums.. why is it getting ping ponged around
(In reply to comment #20) > this feature is all over the forums.. > why is it getting ping ponged around Probably, because nobody feels like implementing it?
The IETF secsh working group is still active, the current draft is http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-10.txt . Anyway, I think this is a strawman argument, because the scp and sftp protocols have in practice been there for several years now; as more and more sites tighten their security, the need increases (in my opinion). But I think it would just need someone to step up and do it... it surely would be a killer feature!
