Well, if you have reason to trust your DNS and intervening routers, yes.

Password authentication is now no longer accepted.  See the system news
bulletin:  http://linuxmafia.com/news.html

Seriously, if you have a well-signed gpg/PGP key that I can verify on
file (with signatures) in the keyservers, send me your SSH public key in
a mail you've gpg/PGP-signed, and I'll add it to your
~/.ssh/authorized_keys on linuxmafia.com.  If not, we can take care of
the matter next time you're at my house, or next time we chat by
telephone.  Again, this is covered in the system news bulletin, linked
from the site's Web front page and elsewhere.
