Submission + - New "mosh" modernizes SSH with IP roaming, instant local echo (

An anonymous reader writes: Launched in 1995, SSH quickly became the king of network login tools, supplanting the old insecure mainstays TELNET and RLOGIN. But 17 years later, a group of MIT hackers have come out with "mosh", which claims to modernize the most annoying parts of SSH. Mosh keeps its connection alive when clients roam among WiFi networks or switch to 3G, and gives instant feedback on typing (and deleting). No more annoying network lag on typing, the MIT boffins say, citing Bufferbloat, which has been increasing latencies. Not sure if the SSH folks will have some tricks up their sleeves though. It's not clear if mosh's security has been vetted yet either.
