Well, what I mean is that it is strange that sshd-7.1p1-1 accepts
a connection from ssh-3.9p1, upon announcing that the "key type ssh-dss [is] not in PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes," and lets the user in having accepted
the password, yet rejects connection from ssh-6.8p1-1 not even allowing
for the presentation of a password, and claims that "seteuid operation
[is] not permitted."
Why was the operation permitted when the key was not in
This seems to me to be a security bug.
And I still wonder how to configure sshd to allow normal connections
with accepted key types, any documentation out there that would help?
