Securely automate your routine file transfer, shell, and public-key administration tasks with this suite of standalone CLI utilities. Save time by using these commands in batch files or shell scripts for setting up new users, updating configurations, backing up files, and rotating logs. On Windows, the standalone VRALib COM API lets customers create scripts for SSH2 connections.
Keyword highlighting enhancements
You now have even more granular control over attributes such as bold and reverse, and the "Match case" option, which can be applied to individual keywords. Entering complex regular expressions for keyword highlighting is easier with an increased character limit for keywords, a larger keyword text box in the Edit Keyword dialog, and the ability to resize the Keyword List Properties dialog.
"The option to set keyword highlight styles (such as reverse video) on a per keyword basis gives me more flexibility." —Matthew Ahlgren, Network Engineer, Ericsson
SSH2 algorithm support
SecureCRT now supports the x509v3-rsa2048-sha256 algorithm for authentication (RFC 6187) and the ability to use the algorithms firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com as OpenSSH certificate types. On Windows, SecureCRT supports using rsa-sha2-256 and rsa-sha2-512 public-key algorithms as raw SSH2 keys for CAPI certificates (RFC 8332) as well as using x509v3-ecdsa-sha2 algorithms from RFC 6187 for keys in the CAPI store and as raw SSH2 keys.
Auto check for updates
Ensure you are running the latest version of SecureCRT by checking for updates automatically at startup. When this option is selected, SecureCRT automatically checks for an update that is valid with the current license.
Administrative options (Windows)
New administrative options have been added to further assist administrators with enforcing security best practices:
- Disable terminal-based file transfer protocols (Kermit, X|Y|Zmodem, Send/Receive ASCII/Binary)
- Disable Expect/Send logon actions and logon scripts
- Suppress the prompt for a configuration passphrase choice the first time SecureCRT runs
Preserve application window size
A new global option preserves the application window size when a session is opened.
"The new functionality that preserves the application window size when opening an initial sessions works exactly as expected. Thank you for adding this improvement to your excellent application." —Robert Emmelot, SecureCRT customer
Specify saved credentials
You now can specify saved credentials in "Send" Logon Actions.
Support has been added for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS 64-bit.
