The SSH and rkhunter configuration options should be the same

I just ran rkhunter --check and all was good except this:

Checking if SSH root access is allowed                   [ Warning]

You can also have this error during a daily run :

Warning: The SSH and rkhunter configuration options should be the same:
         SSH configuration option 'PermitRootLogin': no
         Rkhunter configuration option 'ALLOW_SSH_ROOT_USER': unset

What does this warning mean? SSH root access is not allowed on this system.

 

Solution :

Here is how my /etc/ssh/sshd_config is set:

PermitRootLogin no

and rkhunter.conf

root ~ # cat /etc/rkhunter.conf | grep  ALLOW_SSH_ROOT_USER
#ALLOW_SSH_ROOT_USER=no
ALLOW_SSH_ROOT_USER=unset
