The decision to go with rsh originally was made
before my time at the company, but I suspect it
was because the server (data plane) was required
to execute a few commands per client's request,
as part of it's startup process, so this is even
before anybody has a chance to create ssh keys on
the server side. It's sort of like the chicken 
and egg problem. This whole part of the system 
is going to be re-designed, but until then the 
box has to continue to work with possibly no 
changes to the client side. So, now I'm not sure 
if ssh will work for me.
