SecureCRT 8.0 (beta 2) improves productivity with an updated UI and enhanced smart card (PIV/CAC) support. On Windows, tab groups allow you to compare the output of two sessions, group related sessions, and switch easily between them. On all platforms, you can apply colors to button bar icons for easy-to-see visual cues. TN3270 emulation support expands the range of systems you can use with SecureCRT. Other improvements include Command window "Send characters immediately" mode, host key fall back, and new TFTP server connection options.



SecureFX 8.0 (beta 2) for Windows introduces an updated interface with new themes and toolbar icons as well as a task scheduler so you can schedule transfer and synchronize operations to be run once or at specified intervals. On Windows, you can specify smart cards (PIV/CAC) to be used for public-key authentication, as well as export public keys in Open SSH format and from PKCS #11. All platforms support generating and using ECDSA (RFC 5656) and Ed25519 keys and using PuTTY PPK files for authentication.
