Actually I doubt that would cut it either.  I would say that you either
need to remove the password from the user in question and tell sshd to
accept empty passwords or run the sshd service as the user you need to
be to make this work.  The first option is less secure and the second
limits you to only using ssh as the user you're running the service as
(you can run more than one sshd service though if you need to support
more general access too).
