SecureCRT is a software terminal emulator that allows SSH (Secure Shell) to access a remote computer or server. SecureCRT supports VT100 emulation, telnet, SSH, Kerberos, and serial port connections. It comes with a scripting language and can be used across Ethernet networks or dial-up connections. The default connection type is SSH2, which complies with the goals for terminal connections to UWIT servers.

How to Get SecureCRT

SecureCRT may only be downloaded by current UW staff who are Managed Workstation customers or who have accounts on the Administrative Systems (Keynes or Fastrans). The software may be installed on UW-owned computers and personal devices.
