You generally need read access to /dev/random. It amy also be
necessary to use /dev/urandom (mknod /dev/urandom c 1 9).
Of course both these devices will not work if the kernel's random
number support is unavailable (I think Linux 2.0 added this support
but I am not sure).

There is also the need to create .rnd in the $HOME directory. So the
$HOME directory has to be readable/writable by the user who is making
use of "ssh".
