comment Can you share wisdom on using HISTIGNORE in bash?
To me it has also proven useful to histignore the history command itself.

comment ssh and home directory permissions
Also I corrected the mixup of files in step 4. I don't know whether ssh checks the permissions on the other files in ~/.ssh. For me it didn't. If it does for you, relocate the other files in the same manner. The file holding the authorized_keys is however by far the most important to security.

Nope, the location of the keyfile was changed in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. That means ssh will check the permissions of the new file which are not group readable. All an attacker can do is change a file now rendered irrelevant to ssh. The link is just so the user knows where his new file is.
