I am dealing with a multi-process sshd problem regarding the privilege separation directory. I have been in contact with the OpenSSH team and I have reviewed their source code, specifically: OpenSSH 7.6p1.

Somehow the Ubuntu release of OpenSSH 7.6p1 changed the definition of the _PATH_PRIVSEP_CHROOT_DIR from /var/empty to /run/sshd.

  • Who is the team at Ubuntu that ports OpenSSH from the public version to the Ubuntu version?
  • Where is the modified source code, or modification process, of OpenSSH 7.6p1 exist?
  • How do I get in contact with the OpenSSH Ubuntu import team?

All of the info is hosted on Launchpad. The openssh server package on Launchpad points to an openssh debian team. You can find the members on gitlab.

Ubuntu developers are not specific related to openssh server; they do have the client under their wings. You can find then on the mailinglists.
