10.4: A detailed look at MacFUSE and the SSH file system
Authored by: jiclark on Sep 11, '07 10:03:00AM
Could the same thing be accomplished with this tool?:

SSHhelper

It's free, and says it makes it easy to generate new SSH keys, among other things...

Unfortunately, like so much of the under-the-hood aspects of OS X, I don't fully understand SSH... Is this also a possible solution for using a open wireless network (at a coffeeshop or something) to get a little better security when logging into password-protected services like webmail and the like?

No, but it might help. Where they say
Secure Shell helper alleviates the need to use the command line to configure a working OpenSSH system. It's all point and click !
they're forgetting that you need to have a way of actually doing something with SSH. That's where MacFUSE and sshfs come in.
