Thanks. I tryed to edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and found that it is

Do you have openssh-server installed?


$ rpm -qa 'openssh*'

It sounds a bit strange that you should have sshd alert messages in your logs if you're not running an ssh server.

See also what's listening on your ssh port:
# netstat -nalp | grep :22

3. Consider turning off password authentication altogether and using
certificates instead.

I will look into this. As far as I can see, I would need to purchase a certificate?

No, you generate them yourself.
