Supporting key-based authentication method via web (for NX protocol)

Adding the possibility to use private key authentication method instead of password-based authentication when connecting web sessions. Key-based authentication will be supported initially for the NX only, and then will be made available also for the SSH protocol (see:

The authentication method has to be defined in the Section "Server" group of keys available in the server configuration file (server.cfg):

# The Section directive allows to define settings for the server
# where the Web Player will connect. Edit lines below to define a
# server different from localhost. Protocol is by default 'NX' on
# port '4000'. To use SSH service, specify 'system' and port, by
# default '22' on Linux and Mac and '4022' on Windows. Password-
# based authentication is supported for both protocols, key-based
# authentication is at the moment available only for NX protocol.
# Set respectively 'password' (default) or 'private-key' to enable
# any of them.
