IIRC, rsync protocol do not transfert password in clear text, but use a
challenge method to perform the password verification.
This mean either with rsync or ssh, the authentication is "secure". But saying
both are secure is not enough, it depend the security level you want.
When you use ssh, all data are completely encrypted, you can use either ssh
key or password authentication.
When you use rsync daemon, transfert are faster (no encryption eating CPU),
but anyone being on the network can snif traffic, then getting data.
So this choice depend on what you need to protect (authentication only or
also transferred data). For a www tree, we can assume all data will become
public, and so hidding it is useless.
