:I would worry about having the 'without-password' turned on by

:into the release building process which could lead to the sshd_config

    Maybe there's some confusion here... 'without-password' does not mean
    what you might think it means... it simply means that sshd will ONLY
    accept logins via the (e.g.) authorized_keys file.  'without-password'
    means that no manual password entry will be acceptedd, not that you
    can login to a passwordless account.
