you should mention that you are using an Apache product in your software 
(for instance, if you have a way to display some information in your 
app, like in a 'About' window, you should add 'This product includes 
software developed by the Apache Software Foundation http://apache.org/' 
and add that ' Apache SSHd, SSHd, Apache, the Apache feather logo, and 
the Apache MINA project logos are trademarks of The Apache Software 

You must also include the ASL 2.0 license as an attachement, as 
explained in http://www.apache.org/dev/apply-license.html#new, and the 
provided NOTICE files which contains attribution to the other projects 
Apache SSHd is using.

Also if you mention that your application is based on SSHd, don't forget 
to use 'Apache SSHd' instead of just SSHd, plas to add a line mentioning 
that it's copyrighted.

Last, not least, don't delete the ASL 2.0 license header from the files.

That's pretty much it, AFAIK, but IANAL.

Otherwise, you are totally free to change the code, add some code, even 
change the license of your code : it's all free and up to you :)

Have fun ! And thanks for using SSHd !
