We could set up two-factor authentication with FreeOTP.
Have the dialog provide a QR code for
and then also a token. Leave the users' password as six letters or
whatever, but also require this for SSH.

getting more used to it in general, hopefully. And as a bonus, this
jumps us up to level 3 identity assurance, I believe.
