I don't know about the Globus Integration (whether it will still  
work), but when you have a Tight Integration of all the parallel  
jobs, you could have a cluster without ssh or rsh at all. Another  
option (I use), is to allow ssh to the nodes only for admin staff,  
which you can enter in /etc/ssh/sshd_config ("AllowUsers reuti"). So  
noone can login there at all, besides using the granted interactive  
queue (for checking the state of the running jobs there), which I  
setup with a h_cpu limit of 60 seconds.
