SSH: Why 'PermitRootLogin' should be set to 'Yes' ?

Hi.

from the documentation on bare machine (phase 2, section 2.6) , it is said that 'PermitRootLogin' should be set to 'Yes' . Can I please know why ? I'm not confident to have this account able to connect over ssh. Can we improve it : use a group ? ssh key ?

because eve must be installed from root user, and the best is to do from ssh session as root

When install is done, you could disable Permit Login on Pro edition

On Community as root access is required to launch capture, the process for using ssh keys is often too complicate for people ( using pagent etc on windows is not trivial )
