I will fail my network security certification for saying this: OpenSSH is
more secure than OpenVPN.

They both use the same software encryption software so that's a wash. The
difference is that OpenSSH is older and much more widely installed.
Therefore, I trust it more than OpenVPN.

Bastion hosts (your jump boxes) encourage chewy centers.
