So the easiest route to take might be to dis-allow ssh logins for
everyone except my few authorized users via the /etc/security/access
file? And then to allow exceptions on a case by case basis using this
file as well?
/etc/security/access is definitely an option, as would be putting them
all in a group and using "AllowGroups [your group]" in the sshd_config,
among other possibilities.
Doing something group-based is typically pretty easy to manage.
