Ssh is good stuff -- we use it here. Things I like:
- It's an easy, drop-in replacement for the r* commands. It's
easy to get people to use it.
- It creates that much more encrypted traffic on the net. That
can only be a good thing, eh?
- There are a few different authentication modes, which makes life
easy. Host keys can be used for fixed machines; per-user keys
can sit on the laptop and work no matter whose network you've
plugged into today.
When my local ISP found a password sniffer running on his machine and went
into red alert, I just smiled and didn't bother to change my passwords on
hosts I had logged into via the ISP's net.
