Make SSH do more
One major benefit of SSH, besides the obvious advantage of cryptographically secure connections, is that it allows you to log on to a server without ever having to type your password. You do have to type a password (only once -- but we'll get to that in a minute), but it doesn't have to be the password for your account on the server, and it will be the same password for every system to which you log in. That is possible through the magic of authentication via cryptographic keys.
