Afraid you missed the true point behind SSH for this task. SSH requires a login/password for the machine you're logging into, whereas https is only going to encrypt the data that is sent between the two computers. SSH prevents a random person from using it, https will only prevent a random person in the middle from understanding what another random person is sending to and from the webserver.

My code doesn't have bugs, it just develops random features.
