Not in general. There are also versions of OpenSSH containing technology
patented by RSA, that's why I chose to refer to the SSH protocol instead
of any implementation.

I'm aware of http://www.openssh.com/ and, as far as I checked, the RSA
code is "imported" by use of the OpenSSL library, not OpenSSH itself,
but still I'm not sure whether it's appropriate to refer to OpenSSH
directly.

PS: I already asked the OpenBSD folks to refer to GNU/Linux instead of
Linux...
