Ostiary allows a client to run scripts on a server in a secure, authenticated manner, using an extremely simple protocol that is immune to buffer-overflow attacks. It is useful as a limited ssh/lsh replacement, or to selectively enable full remote shell access on a temporary basis. Clients for Windows, Unix, iOS, Android, and Palm are available.
