I guess you are talking about letting your BE users authenticate on your 
server and gain SSH access?

Then I would let SSH use a pam_ldap mechanism and then use a LDAP 
extension for TYPO3 that let's you synchronize your user account in both 
direction. Because if you let them change their password from within 
TYPO3's backend, then they'll still have to use their "old" LDAP 
password if it is not synchronized back.
