I have been pondering about global SSH access being permitted, however 
the list would have dynamic blacklistings of workstations that were 
marked vunerable.  Vunerable meaning:
 1) permitting SSH version 1
 2) running a known vunerable SSH server version
 3) permitting plaintext login

The 'tweak' to the third clause would be that OTP's would be permitted 
along side the usual pubkey auth only approaches. 

Annoyingly scanssh[1] does not seem to go far enough.  Anyone got any 
suggestions?  All the useful info seems present via 'ssh -vvv', so maybe 
some ugly Perl-glue is called for...
