No advantage, if you can use your whitelist by all means do so. I can't
easily whitelist (users traveling, connecting where they can), so
instead I use iptables and denyhosts to dynamically blacklist. If you
have to leave ssh open and on the standard port the dynamic blacklisting
is very effective.
