[svlug] ssh question

Hello
I realize that using ssh for connecting to a remote will
reduce the chances of
an intruder acquiring your password, since the password will
be encrypted instead
of being sent in cleartext.  But do you have the same
security_ after the connection
 is made.  I am mainly concerned with using "su" to change
to the root user on a
remote machine while connected via ssh.
thanks,
Dana
