Ok. SSH is fine for consoles.

Fortunately, people here don't have bad intentions :o) For example,
login/password strategy on instruments machines is very simple, and almost
anyone can log in any machine. As far as I know, nobody has ever messed up
somebody else experiment ;o)

And all stuff is protected from the outside by strong firewall.

Jupyterhub can be interesting to give a larger access to the instrument
responsible, and simple access to standard users (I understand that this
is something we will have to implement, and not provided by Jupyter).
