Port knocking can be a great additional layer of security, but it can
be a bit complicated to implement.
An easier technique that will probably get rid of about 99% of the
dictionary attacks you are seeing is to simply run sshd on a
non-standard port. It requires client-side configuration, but then
again, so does port knocking.
