SSH Option files using hashes instead of hostnames? Jun 27 2010 09:08PM

Hey there,

SSH allows the option of hashing the known-hosts file in order to prevent
people who get access to your account being able to jump other places. Is
is not conceivable that they'd want the same option with their options

This could be implemented as an alternative to the "Host" option, say
"Hosthash". (Although it would differ in that it would canonicalize the
hostname first, unlike the Host option.)

Has this been discussed in the past?
