W-PuTTY-CD encapsulates PuTTY communications in a Microsoft Windows DLL shell. [1] Applications using W-PuTTY-CD act as clients for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols and automatically get securely in touch with other systems. [2]

WPuTTYCD or WPuTTYCD.DLL, is the project name, while the hyphens are used to clarify that the communication part of the PuTTY program is encapsulated inside.

W-PuTTY-CD is currently beta software. Licensed under the MIT License, and it is free and open source software.
