What version of ssh are you using? And exactly what problem are you
experiencing? You don't state what errors you're getting, or what
is not behaving as you expect.
The config options you've specified are the defaults in 3.4. This should
be sufficient to allow users to connect using keys, rather than passwords.
If you wish to disallow password-based connections, you need to set
"PasswordAuthentication no" in sshd_config, as described in sshd_config(5).
