Enabling OpenSSH Public Key Authentication

I found a really good article on using SSH public key authentication: OpenSSH key management, Part 1. It covers all the basics on generating user private keys with a passphrase, where to place public keys on the server for authentication, etc. Just be sure to check your sshd_config file on the target server to make sure youre putting your public keys in the right place.
