I may like a /home/user/files account for user, then a ftpuser with no bash for FTP only. Also, just for learning how to modify ssh.

What are the security concerns? I thought keys were a good security measure? I know the pass phrase helps if the key is intercepted.

If each user has an account, the logic would be to enable ssh login to their own account so they append their public key in /home/user/.ssh/authorized_keys

There are various security concerns with allowing users to log as ftpuser, for example they could modify authorized_keys
