If you don't give it a password, then it cannot keylogin.

If the home directory uses secure NFS, this is not much of a
problem. If rlogin cannot read your home directory it will not find
the '.rhosts', so you will be asked for a password and then there
will be a keylogin. However, if you are already keylogged in
(keyserv holds your secure nfs key), then your '.rhosts' will be
found, you will be logged in, and no keylogin is required.
What doesn't work is '/etc/hosts.equiv', since that is always visible
even when your home directory is not.

ssh1 will do a keylogin if you use password based authentication.
But ssh2 won't. I believe it is in the wish list of things planned
for the future.
