    I'm in a situation where I need to disable password
    authentication for a user (just public key
    authentication for him) while for the rest I need to
    maintain password authentication.

    My guess would be to set "PasswordAuthentication no"
    in the ~user/.ssh/config file, but it doesn't seem to

    Any ideas?
