Do you know what keyspace you used for your password? i.e. how many

I do remember I chose a lowsec one. I.e. it should be [a-zA-Z0-9]{6-8}

Use your scripting language of choice (e.g. python), create a nested
loop that generates, in a logical manner, the set of passwords in which
the correct password will be found. Have this script able to save to a
file the current loop variables, and load them on startup if given the
file name as a parameter.

Afaik, there is no easy way to feed a password into SSH. Same as
OpenSSL, it was designed _not_ to accept passwords from the
command line. For example, both will clear STDIN before prompting
for a password.
That being said, it should be doable with expect.

openssh is not the only ssh client in Debian. We also have putty,
lsh-client and dropbear.
