About this version:
The 6.3 release for SSH Server and Client is declared feature complete and Long Term
Supported (LTS). Therefore, it is supported for 3 years from the release
date of 6.3.0, with the possibility to extend that support for 2 more years.
There will be 6.3 maintenance releases which will fix critical bugs, but no
new features will be added to any 6.3 release.
Note that SSH ConnectSecure, MFT Events and SSH Server for z/OS are not Long Term
Supported versions, therefore are only supported for 3 years from the release of 6.3.0.
This release of MFT Events, SSH Client, ConnectSecure, and Server 6.3.0 is a
Maintenance Release of MFT Events, SSH Client, ConnectSecure, and Server
6.2.5. Therefore, this release is functionally and syntactically similar to
MFT Events, SSH Client, ConnectSecure, and Server 6.2.5, with the exception
of the bug fixes and the new functionalities and/or features themselves
specified in this document. Therefore, no more maintenance releases will be
made under the name of 6.2.

New features in Tectia SSH Server
Windows: Added new authorization method in SSH Tectia server for Windows
called Password Caching. Used with non-interactive authentication methods
only. When enabled, after the non-interactive authentication method has
successfully granted access to the user, it uses a cached password to obtain
the Access Token in which the user's session will start.
The reason for this is that the Access Token provided by Windows when granting
access without a Password has less privileges than the Access Token provided
by Windows with Password.
