 restricting commands
Author: Julian King 
Date:   11-02-02 13:51

Observation, you don't talk about using 'command=/path/to/command'
in your authorized_keys file. This is a useful addition to the
security of any key in that you can restrict what the key
can do.

Note however that you have to be careful to write secure
commands for it to use - there is little point writing a shell
script which just allows you to pass the -i flag, for example.

Cheers,

Julian
