[one-users] XML-RPC API 2.2 - Session string when ssh authentication

I am using OpenNebula 2.2 and I have a program that interact with it 
using the XML-RPC API for python. The authentication in OpenNebula has 
been configured to use the ssh keys.

I can interact with OpenNebula using the oneadmin user with a session 
string like <username>:<SHA1(password)>. However, when I try to do the 
same for a normal user <username>:<SHA1(public_sshkey)> it does not 
work. I have tried different session string but I didn't find the right 
one. So, what is the structure of the session string that I need to use?

Thanks in advance.
