RE: telnet vs ssh on Core equipment , looking for reasons why ?

2) Your vendor's ssh authentication creates a secure connection, and
   transfers the password securely, only to then send the password,
   unencrypted, to an authentication server for verification, making
   ssh moot.
Less moot if
a) The p/w contains one-time p/w components, or

(if you like logging into your routers more often)

b) You configure aaa to run over ip-sec (say), and fall back to console
  access which is either out of band, or contains one time passwords
