Good alternative to AES for most applications and often much faster.

Be careful when using RC4. As it is stream chiffre, it should be used
with care on untrusted networks. They have the major issue of allowing
pretty precise blind corruption, against which the ssh checksum is only
a partial protection.

``openssl speed XXX'' is your friend :-)

yes! although I've read some while ago, that openssh seems to implement itseft a few ciphers instead of relying on openssl. :-]
