Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

According to "man sshd_config" you can use AllowUsers to restrict this. Here's what is says
shamlessly blagged from 'man sshd_config' AllowUsers
This keyword can be followed by a list of user name patterns,
separated by spaces. If specified, login is allowed only for
users 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.
Well the allowusers statement does not restrict users to their home dir but gives only the possibility to login or not via ssh.
I only want a specific user to access his home directory and he must not be able to go up that directory...
