libssh is a C library to access SSH services from a program. It can remotely execute programs, transfer files, and serve as a secure and transparent tunnel for remote programs. Its Secure FTP implementation can play with remote files easily, without third-party programs other than libcrypto (from OpenSSL) or libgcrypt.
