Secure Shell FAQ Section 1: About Secure Shell

Secure Shell FAQ Section 1: About Secure Shell: "What does Secure Shell protect against?

Secure Shell protects against (again, from the README):

IP spoofing, where a remote host sends out packets which pretend to come from another, trusted host. Ssh even protects against a spoofer on the local network, who can pretend he is your router to the outside.
IP source routing, where a host can pretend that an IP packet comes from another, trusted host.
DNS spoofing, where an attacker forges name server records"
