There's a little bit more.
Your (remote user's) home directory can't be readable by anyone but the
user, or the login will still require your password. It can be
executable but not readable. I personally would make your .ssh
directory be mode 700 too.
I would advise against allowing root to ssh in, I think it's safer to
set up sudo and then make it so root must use the local terminal.
You're saying "access" and "execute" both. Presumably these are
scripts and you want to run them from remote?
