The protocol your auditor speaks of is built into most newer versions of
openssh, so in fact you do not have to upgrade the openssh software if
you want to use protocol 2. Read up about the different protocols in
openssh to find out more, maybe start with
$ man ssh
at the command line. For example it says;
Protocol 2 provides additional mechanisms for confidentiality (the
fic is encrypted using 3DES, Blowfish, CAST128 or Arcfour) and
(hmac-md5, hmac-sha1). Note that protocol 1 lacks a strong
ensuring the integrity of the connection.

You may want to download the latest version of openssh, it is available
The latest version was released in March and is version 4.0p1. Note that
If you are using certain older versions of openssh you may be at risk.
See today's New York Times for more information.
