Okay, lets get back to your initial request.
First here is a nice list of features which ssh has to offer:

Then look here for details:

Here are links to the internet drafts of ssh concerning
transport layer, user authentication layer and more.
Also a link is here to the architecure draft of ssh2.
These will provide you with the info you need to know,
however they're quite technical and perhaps you need to read them
over 3 or even more times, like i am doing now again.
After reading this i guess many questions will be answered.
And .... why would you want to use "secure" telnet?
Everybody uses ssh and will use ssh2 if not allrdy used.
That surely isnt the case with stelnet.
Moreover ... security isnt an after thought, it must be build in with
the very design. That's another reason why i dont use stelnet.
