I am new to SSH. I just want to know how Diffie-Hellman Keys are exchanged in OpenSSH between 2 linux machines.
It enables parties at both ends to derive a shared, secret key without ever sending it to each other. Using a common number, both sides use a different random number as a power to raise the common number.
How this common number is mutually understood between 2 computers which never interacted??
Where can I get openSSH User guide??
