[Tutor] secure connections

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out a way to make a secure connection (preferably via
ssh) to another machine and run a couple of commands. I know how to open a
socket and telnet to a machine to do this, however I need to be able to do
it securely. Is there a module or something in Python for doing this?

I found this URL
http://www.python.org/workshops/1995-12/papers/kuchling.html which talks
about SSLeay but I'm not to sure if this is what I'm looking for.

Any thoughts?

BTW these are UNIX machines, RedHat Linux 6.x to be specific. Thank you in
advance for your time.
