Package: openssh-server
Version: 1:8.4p1-5+deb11u1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

'sshd -T', and since v9.3 also 'sshd -G', is supposed to print the
full, effective configuration. However, debian-banner.patch neglects
to update dump_config(), so there's no line showing the effective
value of the debianbanner setting.

I think the fix is as simple as adding

  dump_cfg_fmtint(sDebianBanner, o->debian_banner);

somewhere appropriate in dump_config().


  sshd -T | grep ^debianbanner

produces nothing, but I'd expect it (in the default Debian
configuration) to print

  debianbanner yes

Source: openssh
Architecture: source
Version: 1:9.5p1-2
Distribution: unstable
Urgency: medium
Maintainer: Debian OpenSSH Maintainers <>
Changed-By: Colin Watson <>
Closes: 1053555
 openssh (1:9.5p1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Upload to unstable.
 openssh (1:9.5p1-1) experimental; urgency=medium
   * New upstream release (
     - ssh-keygen(1): generate Ed25519 keys by default. Ed25519 public keys
       are very convenient due to their small size. Ed25519 keys are
       specified in RFC 8709 and OpenSSH has supported them since version 6.5
       (January 2014).
     - sshd(8): the Subsystem directive now accurately preserves quoting of
       subsystem commands and arguments. This may change behaviour for exotic
       configurations, but the most common subsystem configuration
       (sftp-server) is unlikely to be affected.
     - ssh(1): add keystroke timing obfuscation to the client. This attempts
       to hide inter-keystroke timings by sending interactive traffic at
       fixed intervals (default: every 20ms) when there is only a small
       amount of data being sent. It also sends fake "chaff" keystrokes for a
       random interval after the last real keystroke. These are controlled by
       a new ssh_config ObscureKeystrokeTiming keyword.
     - ssh(1), sshd(8): Introduce a transport-level ping facility. This adds
       a pair of SSH transport protocol messages SSH2_MSG_PING/PONG to
       implement a ping capability. These messages use numbers in the "local
       extensions" number space and are advertised using a ""
       ext-info message with a string version number of "0".
     - sshd(8): allow override of Subsystem directives in sshd Match blocks.
     - scp(1): fix scp in SFTP mode recursive upload and download of
       directories that contain symlinks to other directories. In scp mode,
       the links would be followed, but in SFTP mode they were not.
     - ssh-keygen(1): handle cr+lf (instead of just cr) line endings in
       sshsig signature files.
     - ssh(1): interactive mode for ControlPersist sessions if they
       originally requested a tty.
     - sshd(8): make PerSourceMaxStartups first-match-wins.
     - sshd(8): limit artificial login delay to a reasonable maximum (5s) and
       don't delay at all for the "none" authentication mechanism.
     - sshd(8): Log errors in kex_exchange_identification() with level
       verbose instead of error to reduce preauth log spam. All of those get
       logged with a more generic error message by sshpkt_fatal().
     - sshd(8): correct math for ClientAliveInterval that caused the probes
       to be sent less frequently than configured.
     - ssh(1): fix regression in OpenSSH 9.4 (mux.c r1.99) that caused
       multiplexed sessions to ignore SIGINT under some circumstances.
   * Build-depend on dh-sequence-movetousr.
   * Report DebianBanner setting in "sshd -G/-T" output (thanks, Rasmus
     Villemoes; closes: #1053555).
