Re: Questions about using libssh as SFTP client

Hi Alan,

Your code is correct. Have you specific reasons to use aes128-ctr ? by
default, libssh will select the cipher from a list returned by the
server, which may include more ciphers which have all been proven secure
(well, a little less for the cbc ones).
No option exists to change the hmac because currently the only supported
hmac is hmac-sha1. This may change in the future, but we see no need to
support the weaker hmac-md5.
