I noticed in your sshd_config that you have:
# Change to yes to enable built-in password authentication.
# Change to no to disable PAM authentication
By default, ssh uses PAM for authentication. By commenting those
lines out, it doesn't mean that password checking won't be done, just
that it will be handled with PAM.
And then later in the file you have:
Try commenting out the PasswordAuthentication, PermitEmptyPasswords,
and ChallengeResponse lines.
