I thought about that, but if it were to be used as a honeypot security system, it would be reasonable to log the hostname and username - not the password.

    Like I said, logging the password would give the sysadmin a better idea of what kind of attack is underway -- are the passwords just incremental alphanumerics, or a dictionary list, or a list of usernames? Does it look like the work of a well-known rootkit? Things like that...
