user adminstration

I am pretty new to subversion. I have been reading the subversion book
to try and figure out what the best setup would be in my environment.
I am working in a situation where most people will want to access
subversion via our local network, and a few people will want to access
it outside the network. So I was planning on setting up svnserv as a
deamon for most people and use the ssh key trick to allow those who want
access outside our network.
My main problem is that I would like to restrict access so that only
certain users can brows the repositary. This seems possible with
"blanket" access control, but not very usable. How I understand it is
that I need to add every user and there pasword to the userfile. This
just seems so insecure and enoying for users that they cant change there
own paswords.
So I wanted to ask if there was any tool that allows easier user
administration. Or is there a better way, like using there unix login
names and paswords automatically?

Hope someone can help,
Edwin Walsh
