I'm not certain what you are trying to accomplish.  The server (sshd)
can be configured to permit or disallow password logins.  The client can
be configured to use public/private keys, which can be used to login
without a password.  If you want to be able to login without a password,
the latter is what you want.  You need to look at the ssh-keygen man
page for details.  If you want to disable all password logins via ssh
and *only* allow public key login, then you also need to configure the
server to disallow passwords as a valid authentication method.
