    An pray how is it possible for a human to replay the keystrokes exactly down to the micro or milli second. Chances are that you yourself wouldn't be able to login again ...
    and if you are going to write a program do it, some else could run that program too...

    I had an idea where you time each keystroke of the password and make a fingerprint of the password entry. I found that the time between each keystroke is pretty consistent. I thought it might be an extra level of protect if openssh could use such a technique. I could give you my password but you still wouldn't be able to get into my account. It could be a option for the extra secure accounts.
