Logging failed login attempts (version 3.7.1p2)

Is it possible to configure sshd (version 3.7.1p2, in my case)  to log all
failed login attempts?

I've messed around with various syslog.conf settings and I've modified the
sshd_config file to "UseLogin yes", assuming this may be required in order
to leverage the /etc/default/login settings used by telnet.  Nothing has
worked, so far.

For auditing purposes, I've been asked to show that failed login attempts
are logged.

 Thank you
