SSH provides security via encryption, so it makes it much harder to 
snoop your data including userid and password. However, if some one is 
able to comprimise your userid/password, then you have made the 
firewall a joke because it is so easy to tunnel other protocols via 
ssh. I'd suggest that inbound ssh only be done with strong auth such 
as SecurID.

I have started research into running ssh accross the INTERNET. 
My preliminary research has shown much promiss.

I would appreciate any feedback on this.

I am particularly interested in firewall issues, ie proxy or IP 
forwarding problems.

Thanks for any correspondance.
