As part of the removal of 2FA for interactive logins #3247, further cleanup is required for the sshd configuration on SecureDrop instances:

  1. ChallengeResponseAuthentication is no longer required, as it was necessary for the 2FA PAM module.
  2. UsePAM is no longer required, as no other PAM modules are used
  3. PasswordAuthentication should be set to no (ChallengeResponseAuthetnication set to yes would override PasswordAuthentication set to no)
