    Install knockd.  SSH is a whole lot harder to hack if it doesn't answer
until needed.  Strong passwords, weak passwords, lots of users, very few
users, all doesn't matter when 22 just does not answer.  I had accounts
breached on two different machines in less than a month.  Installed knockd and
the only time sshd shows up in the logs is when it is coming from the very few
people who are authorized to touch the machine.
