I find it interesting (and slightly disturbing) that setting up a private-key-only sshd is considered difficult. I find it disturbing because in that case I may have done it incorrectly myself! :) From my understanding all that is necessary is to enable only the PubkeyAuthentication method in sshd_config, place the applicable public keys in the user accounts' ~/.ssh/authorized_keys files, and restart sshd. Is there more to it that I'm missing?
