Default Creative uses for SSH and SSH keys

Hey guys,

What do you use SSH{, keys} for? Creative things (or ones that may not be immediately obvious) are a plus.

Passwordless logins through SSH are convenient; I also like it for version control ([anon]cvs, github, bitbucket, etc…). I also recently discovered gzsig(1), and have been signing some of the .gz’s I’ve been sending out.

Does your window manager provide any SSH integration? I know that cwm(1) does autocompletion through .ssh/known_hosts, but that’s not much help to me personally as my usernames typically differ… figuring how to add .ssh/config support is on my to-do list.

Has anyone had success encrypting/signing emails with OpenSSH keys? There are projects that allow PGP keys for SSH but AFAIK none do the converse.
Many thanks to the forum regulars who put time and effort into helping others solve their problems.

I'm afraid the most creative use I have for SSH/SSH keys are using it like a big pipe.
