That's an interesting idea, thx.
I'll forward the suggestion to the other admin.

For non technical users you can use ssh as a CA, you can create to each user a public key inside a USB Pendrive and them configure their ssh clients (like a portable putty, and so) with that certificate (key). This way they can authenticate to your server.

Thanks for all advises.
I actually don't need a full ssh implementation. The thing a wanted was a simple password-authentification for non-technical users without support for rsa-keys, remote execution etc.
But it sounds to complicated for a side-project...
Problem solved. Not quite the solution I hoped for but anyway...

When you try to connect to a SSH Server it exchanges a session key, you would have to give that to the server before authentication.
Like Salva said, it's far more complicated than that.

Subject: simulate connection with netcat
my long-term intention is to write a cross-platform GUI-authpf-client
without using libssh or libssh2. Before I get into that I'd like to simulate
the ssh-connection/authentication via netcat.
I took a look at the RFCs but don't get it working.
% nc 127.0.0.1 22
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.2<-- entered by me
... a lot of text ...
What do I enter now to authenticate?
My attempts resulted in "Packet corrupt".
writting something at your keyboard by hand.
You can find pointers to the related RFCs here:
