ChallengeResponseAuthentication defaults to no?

I have just installed OpenSSH 4.6p1 and it appears that ChallengeResponseAuthentication is not allowed unless I explicitly set it to "yes" in the sshd_config file. I am using the same config file as I did with 4.5p1 where it was allowed by default. Also, this is OpenSSH package from sunfreeware, but I believe that both versions were compiled with the same options.

Is this the intended behavior?


  Thank you,
