I'm confused. Do you want an SSL server or an SSH server?
i would like an ssh server, so that i can ssh into manhole from a regular terminal, essentially so that i can use the ssh interactive password prompts to authenticate against some arbitrary backend.
Okay. You just need to implement a checker for IUsernamePassword, then. Add this to a portal wrapped around a realm that knows about IConchUsers and you should be set, as far as authentication goes.
Take a look at twisted/conch/manhole_ssh.py for an idea of what needs to happen to hook manhole up to a conch server.
