SSH2 protocol library

Project description

paramiko-ng is a fork of paramiko for more active maintenance.

For changes in releases of this fork, see

This is a library for making SSH2 connections (client or server). Emphasis is on using SSH2 as an alternative to SSL for making secure connections between python scripts. All major ciphers and hash methods are supported. SFTP client and server mode are both supported too.

Required packages:


The import name is still just paramiko. Make sure the original paramiko is not installed before installing paramiko-ng - otherwise pip may report success even though paramiko-ng was not correctly installed.

To install the development version:

pip install -e git+

You can also install under the original “paramiko” pip-package-name, in order to satisfy requirements for other packages:

PARAMIKO_REPLACE=1 pip install

Replace “2.7.4” with the desired recent version, or for latest development version do:

PARAMIKO_REPLACE=1 pip install git+
