ssh a.k.a sshd is a service running on Unix/Windows machines. If you ask how do you get the password .. sorry my friend but i answer you with another question :
Why do you need it ? If you don't google 5 minutes before asking here ... you cant just enter in some machine using sshd to ask after that :
Code:
I own a Linux server. What's next ?

password hash can be found in /etc/shadow file , to view it you must be root . If you are root and you just need to find a password hash just use this command:
Code:
cat /etc/shadow | grep your_username
Have fun
