rsh equivalent

I am looking for PD version of code that accomplishes the same thing
as rsh but conforms to the RFC's (machine name case independent).
We have users who like to pipe BIG jobs from one machine to another
machine via rsh's.

The reason I am interested in something other than rsh is because
here at UNM we are strongly considering disallowing the r* programs
(rsh/rcp/rlogin) because they do NOT conform to the RFC's as well
as being BIG security problems (.rhosts).

I have heard of other Universities defining their own protocols to
accomplish distributed processing without the big security holes.
I would appreciate ANY information any of you might have concerning
such protocols/utilities and there possible availability.

Thanks in advance,
