I have CentOS 5 and this option in cpanel is currently disabled (Password Authentication is currently disabled.) Yet i can still connect to SSH with password.

Hi,

Will you please tell me which C-Panel/WHM version are you currently using?

By the way you can still lock down SSH pretty well as making the following changes simply:

vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

PermitRootLogin no #disable root user login
Port 221 #ssh port other than the default which is 22
AllowUsers bob #only allow limited user/s


and then finally restarting the SSH daemon:

service sshd restart
