What is the purpose of the SloopEngine SSH log?

The SloopEngine SSH log serves as a comprehensive record of all SSH sessions that take place on a system, providing a reliable source of information for various purposes. One primary use of this log is for auditing, whereby it ensures that all SSH activities comply with company policies and best practices. Besides, the SSH log plays a crucial role in the security of a system, as it helps detect and investigate potential security breaches by monitoring the SSH log for suspicious activities. The SSH log is also an essential tool for troubleshooting, enabling system administrators to diagnose and troubleshoot issues that may have occurred during an SSH session by analyzing the log for error messages or other relevant information. Additionally, the SSH log is used to meet regulatory requirements by keeping a record of all SSH activities on a system and for forensic purposes, helping investigators investigate any issue that may have happened on the system, such as hacking, by reviewing the log.
