1. Create a private and a public key with 
    ssh-keygen -t dsa

2. Now you should have something like 
   id_dsa and id_dsa.pub

3. Add the content of the public key file id_dsa.pub to the users .ssh/authorized_keys file folder on the host you want to connect with 
   cat id_dsa.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys
