Description

Is it necessary to enforce the user to setup a ssh environment? What is the benefit of prohibiting authentification via password?
It would be easy to enable password authentification. Just delete the option "-oPasswordAuthentication=no" from following line.

Removing this option, I did not observed any issues so far.
However you need to type the password several times... That's why it makes sense to setup the ssh environment ;-)

Disabling host key verification and enabling password authentication at the same time creates a security threat (possible man in the middle attack). However, the danger is of more theoretic nature in typical vdemo environments...
