## Load Control

#       LoadControl.DiscardLimit        see below
#       LoadControl.WhitelistSize       1000
#
# MaxConnections is the limit of the number of concurrent connections. It must
# be greater than 1 when Load Control is active. The value 0 means that the
# number of connections is unlimited and causes Load Control to be disabled.
#
# Set LoadControl.Active to yes to enable load control.
#
# LoadControl.DiscardLimit must not be larger than MaxConnections. The default
# value is 90 % of MaxConnections.
#
# LoadControl.WhitelistSize is the number of distinct IP addresses that the
# whitelist can hold.

## Crypto Hardware

#       UseCryptoHardware               yes
# Specifies whether hardware support is wanted for certain
# algorithms. The support levels are
#   no          do not use crypto hardware
#   yes         use crypto hardware if available
#   must        use crypto hardware, fail if not available
#
# The level may be given alone as a default for all algorithms or
# together with an algorithm. The algorithm names that may
# be used are:
#   rng         random number generator
#   sha         SHA1 and SHA2 digest algorithms (sha1 is equivalent)
#   aes         AES algorithms
#   3des        Triple DES
#
# UseCryptoHardware is a comma-delimited list of algorithm:support level
# pairs. It may start with a sole support level
#
# E.g. To use all available hardware support and fail if support for 3DES
#      or SHA is not available, specify "yes,aes:must,sha:must"
#
# On most IBM mainframe systems the following algorithms have hardware support:
# the ciphers "aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc" and the MACs
# "hmac-sha1,hmac-sha224@ssh.com,hmac-sha256@ssh.com,hmac-sha2-256,
# hmac-sha256-2@ssh.com, hmac-sha384@ssh.com,hmac-sha2-512,
# hmac-sha512@ssh.com". The support is provided by
# the CPACF facility and ICSF.

## Host restrictions

#       AllowHosts               localhost, example\.com, friendly\.example
#
## Next one matches with, for example, taulu.foobar.com, tuoli.com, but
## not tuoli1.com. Note that you have to input string "\." when you want it
## to match only a literal dot. You also have to escape "," when you
## want to use it in the pattern, because otherwise it is considered a list
## separator.
##
##     AllowHosts               t..l.\..*
##
## The following matches any numerical IP address (yes, it is cumbersome)
##
##     AllowHosts               ([[:digit:]]{1\,3}\.){3}[[:digit:]]{1\,3}
##
## Same thing is achieved with the special prefix "\i" in a pattern.
## This means that the pattern is only used to match IP addresses.
##
## Using the above example:
##
##     AllowHosts               \i.*
##
## You can probably see the difference between the two.
##
## Also, you can use subnet masks, by using prefix "\m"
##
##     AllowHosts               \m127.0/8
## and
##     AllowHosts               \m127.0.0.0/24
##
## would match localhost ("127.0.0.1").
##
#       DenyHosts                       evil\.example, aol\.example
#       AllowSHosts                     trusted\.host\.example

#       IgnoreRhosts                    no
#       IgnoreRootRHosts                no
# (the above, if not set, is defaulted to the value of IgnoreRHosts)

## User restrictions
# User and group names must be in uppercase.

#       AllowUsers                      SJ.*,S[[:digit:]]*,S(JL|AMZA)
#       DenyUsers                       SKUUPPA,WAREZDUDE,31373

# Also internal SFTP subsystem can be used.
#       subsystem-sftp                  internal://sftp-server

## Subconfiguration
# There are no default subconfiguration files. When specified the last
# obtained keyword value will prevail. Note that the host-specific files
# are read before the user-specific files.
# User and group names must be in uppercase.

# Following matches (from) any host:
#
#      HostSpecificConfig .* /opt/tectia/etc/subconfig/host_ext.example
#
# Following matches to subnet mask:
#
#      HostSpecificConfig \m192.168.0.0/16 \
#/opt/tectia/etc/subconfig/host_int.example
#
# Following matches to users from ssh.com that have two character
# username or username is SJL and belong to group WHEEL or WHEEL[0-9]:
#
#      UserSpecificConfig (..|SJL)%WHEEL[[:digit:]]?@ssh\.com \
#/opt/tectia/etc/subconfig/user.example
#
# Following matches to the user ANONYMOUS from any host:
