If i'm not mistaken every version will support ssh, it's just more packages you have to install.  It depends on which flavor of linux.  Red hat is currently at 7.3, the linux shell is currently at 2.4.18

> .. secure socket layer
if you mean SSL, that's supported by any Linux, see http://www.openssl.org/

> .. linux shell is currently at 2.4.18
the Linux kernel is 2.4.18
shells are at various versions (tcsh 6.10.x, bash 2.03.x, zsh 3.1.x, ...)

kernel is 2.2.12 with SMP support (probably)

shell is bash in most cases, check with
  echo $SHELL

I don't know of a secure way to identify the distribution, but check files in /etc
   if you have rc.config it's most likely SuSE
   if there is a xinetd directory, most likely RedHat
   see /etc/issue
