Erlang secure RPC and the SSH module

By Erlang Central | Published: March 22, 2010

Remote Procedure Call (RPC) over public Internet has to be cryptographically protected for secure communication. In the current Distributed Erlang, this cannot be done in a firewall-friendly way.

This presentation provides an introduction of writing code using Secure Shell (SSH) protocol on Erlang with Erlang/OTP ssh module, and a description of an RPC method based on SSH subsystem implemented on Erlang.
