Hi all, I have a doubt. I ussually use ssh to access remote machines without sending any password (PasswordAuthentication no) and I store private keys with the help of ssh-agent. This is valid also to login as another users (including root) in the local machine (ssh root@localhost). With the help of ssh agent, on can open several root sessions by only asking one password: the one of my private key "id_rsa". In this way I void tping a root password any time I want to be root. It is very easy for me to work this way, but I would to know if there could be aware of any possible security problems to do so. The only problem is that if I make ssh root@localhost, its gain root privileges whitout asking any password.
