I have just written a doc about the encrypted passwords which will be in the
helpfile for the next release of pgAdmin, and can be found at
<> . 
SSH connections are slightly different to the encrypted passwords - they
encrypt the entire session over the wire, whilst the passwords are encrypted
over the wire *and* in pg_shadow. pgAdmin with SSH is outlined here:
For the best security,  why not use both?
Regards, Dave.

I tunnel my pgAdmin connection through an SSH connection to provide security
for pgAdmin logins.  You can use the standard SSH port forwarding feature to
have your pgAdmin connect to PostgreSQL.  I believe there is now
documentation on how to use SSH port forwarding with pgAdmin.  
I hope this helps.
