comment Disabling authentication via DSA keys in OpenSSH?
Note that OpenSSH key generation nowadays caps DSA keys at 1024 bits, for strict RFC compliance and better interop with some other implementations, so without patching ssh-keygen you can't generate a DSA key of a length appropriate for modern use. Thus use RSA and ECDSA, but avoid DSA.

DSAAuthentication is an alias for PubkeyAuthentication, so disabling it also disables RSA.
