In the past the default ssh client on the alpine installation was
dropbear. Now I installed Alpine through the iso on another computer
and I noticed that changed to openssh.
Why did this happen? I think dropbear was okay as the default.

Ciao.

Not sure about releases earlier than 2.x, but since then it has been the
default.

Tinyssh
<http://it-offshore.co.uk/linux/alpine-linux/52-alpine-linux-tinyssh-secure-by-default>
is nice & small (& in testing) - I use it in LXC containers instead of
dropbear.

Why? to save a little memory.

I just switched from connectbot to openssh on android via termux and
I'm SOOOO glad.

Personally I'd *always* prefer the mainstead openssh but could always
install if need be. Do dropbear or tinyssh support the latest lean
protocols like poly1305 and secure ecdsa like ed25519?
