SSH Credentials Plugin
This plugin allows you to store SSH credentials in Jenkins.For more information on how to create and use credentials in general in Jenkins, please visit the Credentials Plugin wiki page.
Using with Trilead SSH client library
Get the authenticator after you have opened the connection and let it handle authentication for you
Using with JSch SSH client library
Get the authenticator before you have opened the connection (using the JSchConnector, needed because of the strange dichotomy with JSch between public key authentication and user/password authentication) and let feed in authentication for you:

Version 1.0 (Aug 7, 2013)
- Upgrade to Credentials Plugin 1.0 and migrate to new data types.
- Any existing plugins that request credentials of type SSHUserPrivateKey explicitly will be unaffected.
- If an existing plugin requests credentials of type BasicSSHUserPassword the resolution mechanism will handle the mapping to a concrete StandardUsernamePasswordCredentials transparently
- If an existing plugin requests credentials of the base interface type SSHUser it will not be able to locate and StandardUsernamePasswordCredentials implementations and will need to be adapted to integrate correctly with the new class tree.
- SSHAuthenticator.matcher() and SSHAuthenticator.matcher(Class< Connection type>) can be used to retrieve a CredentialsMatcher to narrow the search for appropriate credentials.
- NOTE: This version requires the SSH Slaves plugin be upgraded to at least version 1.0 or it will break the installed SSH Slaves plugin.
- NOTE: This version modifies the configuration data format from a format that can be read by version 0.4 to a format that can only be read by 1.0 or newer. It will not be possible to downgrade from 1.0 to a previous release without risking configuration data loss.

Version 0.2 (Oct 25, 2012)
