Thank you for answer,

you are right, word "impossible" I should write with quotation marks ;), but
I think, that if I say that I´m using private key (attacker can discover
this very simply) only from my IP (this is, I think, only information
saying: "try rader some much less secured machine") and allowed is only root
is another sort of informations: "try rader less secured machine". But if
you know how this sort of informations can help please be more accurate.

I had a big discussion about logging with another user and using su and I
was discovered, that there are two very big sides: one side is convinced
that this is big security improvement, but second side saying, that this is
vain effort.
