It seems so, although I've never seen one. From "man sources.list"...
ssh The rsh/ssh method method invokes rsh/ssh to con
nect to a remote host as a given user and access
the files. No password authentication is possible,
prior arrangements with RSA keys or rhosts must
have been made. Access to files on the remote uses
standard find and dd commands to perform the file
transfers from the remote.
