I guess you mean "as secure as ssh `public-key authentication'": ssh
can be configured to use Kerberos or other authentication kinds if
the needed infrastructure is in place, then leaving ssh to do what
it does best (channel encryption &c). I'm told few actually use the
theoretical abilities of Kerberos to channel-encrypt, and for good
cause (I'm not really qualified to debate the theoretical issues...).
