I'd recommend using key based authentication instead and would 
_strongly_ advise against using "PermitEmptyPassword yes". Any use case 
for the latter is better solved with an unencrypted (i.e. no passphrase) 

PermitRootLogin without-password
PubkeyAuthentication yes
PermitEmptyPasswords no
PasswordAuthentication no

There are worms out there (yes, there's malware even on Linux!) trying 
to get into ssh accounts with poorly chosen passwords. Don't provide 
them any opportunity to infect even more hosts.
