And how exactly does that take logging into a trusted box from a potentially 
untrusted one out of the equation? You're merely moving the original problem 
to a proxy (which might get compromised as well), not solving it. When you 
are on a dynamic IP, you can't just push a button to get a static, trusted 
one, but you might still need to log in to your database server to restart a 
crashed service.
