SSH Vs Telnet
SSH and Telnet are used to achieve the same result, to connect to the switch/router remotely however SSH and Telnet couldn't be more different in terms of security. While Telnet is still widely used but it has a BIG security flaw, it transmits all login details in PLAIN TEXT causing a huge security vulnerability and allowing anyone with the know how to pick out the logging information to you Cisco devices!
SSH on the overhand is completely secure and should be used over telnet every time. It uses a very clever process that encrypts and decrypts the data that is sent, you can read more on how it is done here http://coplex.co.uk/cisco/how-to-configure-ssh/
SSH does have a few extra steps involved but still only takes a few minutes to set up as this videos shows you.
This video uses a Cisco 3550 Switch however the process is the same for switches and routers.
