Security\SSH\Host Authentication

Use the Host Authentication section to manage the keys that authenticate the host to your client session. You can view the list of trusted hosts, add or delete host keys, and specify how you want Reflection to handle unknown hosts. These settings are available in the Host Authentication section of the Secure Shell Settings dialog box.
