Alexander von Gernler (grunk@) told us about a recent change to SSH which he committed. This change switches SSH from using the keyword CheckHostIP to use the new config option VisualHostKey to enable fingerprint Visualization.
Read on for the commit message.
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: email@example.com 2008/06/26 05:46:32 Modified files: usr.bin/ssh : readconf.c readconf.h ssh.1 ssh_config.5 sshconnect.c Log message: Move SSH Fingerprint Visualization away from sharing the config option CheckHostIP to an own config option named VisualHostKey. While there, fix the behaviour that ssh would draw a random art picture on every newly seen host even when the option was not enabled.
