Wouldn't this mean to run a second sshd (with the certificate)?

The sense of my little defense program is to avoid brute force attacks
too. How would I do that in that case?

I thought about a second sshd and accept only _one_ user identified by a
key (instead of password). The second sshd would use a different config
file and port, but the same certificate. I'll think about it...
