i've seen this kind of problem for HP ssh:
http://h20293.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T1471AA

and here was the Strong Random Number Generator (needed for ssh ...)
http://h20293.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=KRNG11I
but it doesn't seem to support 11.00 (which is EOL at the end of this
year ...
http://www.hp.com/softwarereleases/releases-media2/notices/0303.htm)

if you really want some, could look in
