If you need to make an SSH connection and issues commands over SSH using your Python application, then you can do the following:

Option 1 – Using the paramiko library

ssh = paramiko.SSHClient()
ssh.connect(server, username=username, password=password)
ssh_stdin, ssh_stdout, ssh_stderr = ssh.exec_command(cmd_to_execute)

Option 2 – Using the subprocess module

subprocess.check_output(['ssh', 'my_server', 'echo /*/'])

Option 3 – Using the subprocess module

subprocess.Popen("ssh {user}@{host} {cmd}".format(user=user, host=host, cmd='ls -l'), shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE).communicate()
