Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


   If you don't want some people login to your system, then you can simply disable/delete their accounts.
Or edit /etc/password and make their default shells to /bin/false.

check http://www.hmug.org/man/5/sshd_config.html

manpage of sshd_config

           This keyword can be followed by a list of user name patterns,
           separated by spaces.  Login is disallowed for user names that
           match one of the patterns.       `*' and `?' can be used as wildcards
           in the patterns.  Only user names are valid; a numerical user ID
           is not recognized.       By default, login is allowed for all users.
           If the pattern takes the form USER@HOST then USER and HOST are
           separately checked, restricting logins to particular users from
           particular hosts.
