I don't think you can. However, I use TACACS on all my switches and routers. From what I know, TACACS passwords are encrypted using the key on your network devices and the TACACS server. So, that, in combination with a private management LAN not accessible by your customers should lock down your network pretty effectively. Any comments?

Can one setup SSH on a Cisco 6509?
