SSH2 protocol library
Welcome to Paramiko!
Paramiko is a pure-Python  (3.6+) implementation of the SSHv2 protocol , providing both client and server functionality. It provides the foundation for the high-level SSH library Fabric, which is what we recommend you use for common client use-cases such as running remote shell commands or transferring files.
Direct use of Paramiko itself is only intended for users who need advanced/low-level primitives or want to run an in-Python sshd.
For installation information, changelogs, FAQs and similar, please visit our main project website; for API details, see the versioned docs. Additionally, the project maintainer keeps a roadmap on his personal site.
