I use the nifty (relatively) new "Match" sshd_config stuff to disable
root login (and any kind of simple password login for that matter)
from IP addresses outside my local network, so I can still ssh as root
easily inside my firewall, but if I'm coming from outside, I need the
proper long passphrase protected public key and can only login
as a normal user.
