Hi MJ !
With sshproxy, each user has his own login/password (or login/pubkey) to
connect to sshproxy. Then, he can ask to connect to another server
without knowing the password of it, only if it is allowed to by ACL.
It is aimed at groups sharing root passwords to access servers. When
people leave the group, root passwords should be changed on all
servers. With sshproxy, when a people leave, you just have to remove his
account (or to disable his access through ACL).
More scenarios here: http://sshproxy-project.org/about/
Thanks for your help.
