leafnode-2, which has not yet been officially released, supports a local
file in user:encryptedpassword format for authentication or PAM. PAM has
been reported not to work with system accounts (unix_chkpwd problems as
it seems) but anything that does not require root privileges to access
some file should be fine.
Leafnode-1 cannot authenticate users, a possible solution to that
problem would be to install an SSL wrapper with strict certificate
validation and let the user authenticate with his certificate, or write
an authentication wrapper that refuses any command until authenticated.
