Openldap as an ssh gateway
The central gateway must be configured through a web gui so we can easily disable users ssh access to remote servers, and our developers would prefer to use ssh keys rather than usernames and passwords.
So I was thinking of creating an ldap server in EC2 so the connection would be
Developer > Openldap > ec2 instance using an SSH tunnel.
The developers would be anywhere in the world, but would only be connecting from their own inidividual laptops.
Currently they are connecting directly to the instances themselves all using the same ssh key, making administration of users impossible when someone leaves.
How do I accomplish this?

Have the developers to create their own keys and you put their public key on the destination. They then use their own key and you can remove the needed key(s) when they leave.
