This was only an example, that SSH has a higher administration
investment. The comparison For SSH this does not work in another way.
SSH would have to support something like the ROOTCERT mode of the PAM
module to get rid of it. I obly wanted to emphasize that configuration
should not be used if they are not necessary, like in the case of the
PAM module for the cert number and key number.
