You can't do more than maybe 10 attempts/second this way, while cracking
10 character password consisting of just small letters and digits needs
10 characters is a longer than usual password. Most people have been
conditioned into using a 7 or 8 character password, which is at least a
so that's the answer how to secure SSH server. use 10 letter random
36^10=3656158440062976 possible passwords, and over 11 milion years to
check all possibilities, so say 100000 years if someone is really lucky
and will get it after checking 1% possible password.
There is a very big flaw in your analysis here. You're assuming that
the passwords people might use are randomly and evenly distributed over
So you already confirmed what i say. It's human problem - for example
not using random passwords.
Talking about security within that context is a joke.
