That screen is so annoying! It always says my password is weak.

But wouldn't what you suggest create a security problem? An evil guy
could try to ssh to your machine after sshd is up and before firstboot
sets the root password.


If the root password is empty ssh does not allow a root login.

Isn't it enabled by default:
man sshd_config

     PermitRootLogin
Specifies whether root can log in using ssh(1). The argument must be “yes”, “without-password”, “forced-commands-only”, or “no”. The default is
             “yes”.
