ssh authentication; readers/writers/passwd

Hi, all...

I'm new to the list and have been reading lots about CVS 
for the last couple weeks.  I still have much to read, but 
I've read enough so far to start asking specific questions 
for things I could not find the answer to.

Before I knew much of anything about CVS, I setup a testing
repository on one of my machines, just to start tinkering.
After reading a few things about pserver, I immediately 
decided to not use pserver and use ssh for access.

Under this model, is all access controlled solely via the
unix system permissions, or can I also control things with
the CVSHOME/readers, writers, passwd files?  I am hoping
that these are still used by CVS even if I'm not using
the pserver authentication system.  Is this the case?

I'd like to use the passwd file to setup aliases for 
project access with project-based system users.  Or should
I just do this using unix group permissions?

Thanks for any info/advice...  :)
