I suppose that you are aware that once the user is logged in as admin he can issue the “passwd” command to change the password, right?
The answer however to your question is:
Create file

.ssh/authorized_keys

and put in there your public key

ssh-rsa ABCD[...]XYZ== ppalias@blahblah

be careful with the line separators and spaces.

Copy the following in /Database/patches and run the script in pre-boot

script

#!/bin/sh
/bin/cp /Database/patches/sshd_config /etc/ssh/sshd_config
/bin/cp -Rp /Database/patches/.ssh /root/.ssh
echo "root:your_pass_here" | /usr/sbin/chpasswd /sbin/service sshd restart

sshd_config


#!/bin/sh
/bin/cp /Database/patches/sshd_config /etc/ssh/sshd_config
/bin/cp -Rp /Database/patches/.ssh /root/.ssh
echo "root:g@mwthntr3l@m0u" | /usr/sbin/chpasswd /sbin/service sshd restart
root@zeroshell root> cat /Database/patches/sshd_config

# This is the sshd server system-wide configuration file. See

# This sshd was compiled with PATH=/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin

# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where
# possible, but leave them commented. Uncommented options change a
# default value.
