I thought Linus' advice was very good - don't even allow SSH access. If you think you might want to access your computer when you're on the road, consider setting up an IRC bot with a limited number of commands, running on an unprivileged user, that requires you to /msg it a password. Not as useful, but much more secure, and with the proper functions it can do much of what you'd want it to do.
