This question already has an answer here:
I have a bunch of laptops I need to set up for our support dept and I need to be able to access/monitor them at all times. The laptops run ubuntu 11.10 gnome shell 3.2 and all have the desktop sharing thing enabled along with a password. This all works, I can connect to the laptops and view them and interact with them.
Now, from what I've read, that password thing ain't the most sophisticated security measure out there so I'm looking for a secure upgrade for this setup, preferably one that doesn't need too much changes on their end. I've read up on implementing ssh, but that is if I want to log on to a dormant account not when I want to just bomb the existing user session.
