My default setup of Jailkit on a Suse Linux 9.3 has PasswordAuthentication set to no. I have a vendor who has struggled with connecting to our SFTP site until they realized that password authentication was set to no and that they needed to utilize keyboard-interactive. They have requested I set PasswordAuthentication to yes. I have researched this and the only negative I see is that it may allow the user to change their password if I turn on PasswordAuthentication as a method to connect. This is sufficient for me to leave it off, however I would like to know if there are any other consequences to turning it on (to have more reasons to leave it off) and is this the only way to make password authentication function?

keyboard-interactive == password authentication, right? perhaps I'm too jet-lagged, but at this moment I know of two mechanisms in ssh, which is logging in with a server-side known key, or with a password.. I guess I'm too jet-lagged, because I don't really understand the question..
