    We do that already, by requiring the usage of 'root'.
    Wouldn't need to be anything standard, setting the password could be done
    during agent install, by asking or generating something random and printing
    it to stdout -- heck, the mgmt server could even change to something random
    during the first setup.

    The mgmt server tries to ssh and start the agent if it's registered down
    for some reason.
