Futile SSH connection attempts

It’s pretty funny to see how people try to brute force connect to the SSH daemon on the server: multiple attempts to connect unsuccessfully showing up like a sore thumb on the logs.

But hey, stop wasting your time and giving me entertainment like this already, you MUST have the correct private key in order to connect via SSH. Slightly more inconvenient than using passwords, but it takes a load off my mind knowing that brute forcing passwords is simply impossible, and it would take the SSH keys to be compromised in order to get in (which won’t be worth the cost/effort anyway).

Maybe I will start listing these jokers in a wall of shame or something. Maybe.
