:facepalm: Allowing password authentication in SSH is like securing the vault with a ziptie. Secure key exchange is not that hard.

And yes, the number of password-based logon attempts on my server has recently gone from about 10 or 20 a day to 500+.
If I used port 22 and didn't use fail2ban, I hate to think how many it would be.
