It's possible you want to rework this as something like:
  Description: authentication management gateway for SSH connections

Christian mentioned s/ssh/SSH/.  The general idea is that lowercase
implies you're talking about a particular piece of software; the
network protocol itself is SSH. 

Likewise, the executable (and the package) may be python but the
language is Python.  However, do users particularly need to be told
that it's pure Python?  This may be obvious from the dependencies,
or indeed the implemented-in::python debtag.

Here you mean wrappers around (/usr/bin/)ssh itself, right?

Have you got a "Homepage: http://sshproxy-project.org/"; header?
