Restricting SSH access to given users

Sometimes on lab machines or machines which are part of AD/LDAP domain, it may be desired to allow SSH access only for few users. To achieve that use following steps:

  1. Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config as follows:
    1. Append 'AllowUsers <usernames>'
  2. Use 'service sshd restart'

Similarly to allow everyone except a few users 'DenyUsers' can be used.
