Token2Shell/MD now has a faster AES-CTR cipher

The following summarizes new features and changes in version 10.12.0: AES-CTR cipher is improved and should now provide faster speed for built-in SFTP/SCP. Token2Shell/MD makes use of the AES cipher API's built into Windows 10. However, we've now optimized the routines for accessing those API's and achieved better overall performance. Layout Freezer can now be […]

Token2Shell/MD now ready for ChaCha20-Poly1305 and TLS 1.2

ChaCha20 is a stream cipher and Poly1305 is a data authenticator and both algorithms are known for their high-performance. These two algorithms are combined and formed the "chacha20-poly1305@openssh.com" cipher method for OpenSSH. Token2Shell/MD now also supports chacha20-poly1305@openssh.com. When this method is selected for a session, your setting for the MAC algorithms (ex. hmac-sha2-256-etm@openssh) will be […]

Token2Shell/MD now even supports ZModem and XModem!

ZModem/XModem can be handy as files are sent or received over the current connection without depending on additional daemons or background service software. You just need ZModem/XModem executables (ex. lrzsz) that are readily available for almost all Unix and Unix-like servers. They are also still widely used for embedded devices for updating firmware or retrieving […]

Serial devices can now be directly connected from Token2Shell/MD

Token2Shell/MD version 10.7.0 is now available. Along with bug fixes and minor enhancements, the new version now natively supports serial communication. The following summarizes new features and changes. Now supports serial communication via modern interface ports including USB-to-Serial adapters and Bluetooth virtual serial ports. On-board serial ports commonly found in legacy computers are *NOT* supported. […]
