But sadly I find that I can only download it through *unsecured* plain http/ftp/rsync protocol, vulnerable to attacks by anyone in the network path. It is odd that *the* software about security and encryption across untrusted network is distributed to everyone insecurely and not encrypted. Is there any future plan to distribute OpenSSH over secured channel, such as https?

      Er, what about checksum?
