On my local network I have installed and run telnet-ssl and telnetd-ssl.
This is "normal" telnet authentication, but your password, etc. is sent
encrypted instead of in the clear.  That's enough paranoia for me, since
I have a very strict firewall guarding it.

Check it out (apt-get install telnet-ssl telnetd-ssl).
