This virtual machine contains a fork of OpenSSH 7.9 that adds experimental quantum-resistant key exchange and digital
signature algorithms using liboqs for prototyping purposes.
Users can logon and manage their VMs over a quantum-safe ssh connection (when also using the Quantum-safe OpenSSH client).
Included in this image:
liboqs is an open source C library for quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms. See here for more information.
OpenSSH is an open-source implementation of the Secure Shell protocol. View the original README.
Details on each supported algorithm can be found in the liboqs docs/algorithms folder.These supported algorithms are a subset of the round 2 candidates of the NIST standardization competition, as provided by the Open Quantum Safe library. This list will change following upcoming OQS updates.

This version of OpenSSH is intended for research, prototyping, and experimentation purposes only. It is not recommended for use in production or business environments and/or to protect sensitive data.
