> "Securing" ssh with a VPN is just one step beyond of security by obscurity.

You're not securing ssh with a vpn. You're adding another layer. ssh is still secured by all of ssh's existing protection.

ssh behind a vpn requires that someone both compromise the vpn _and_ compromise the ssh service to gain that access that, without a vpn, would require them to only compromise the ssh service.
