iTWire interviews Damien Miller (djm@)

If you're running GNU/Linux and communicating remotely with other computers, there's a very good chance you have reason to thank Damien Miller.

The soft-spoken developer, now in his mid-30s, has been handling the portable OpenSSH project for some years now; mapping of SSH versions on the internet show that something like 81.25 percent of the SSH servers are running OpenSSH.
