Ubuntu/Debian:

sudo apt-get install -y openssh-server

CentOS/RHEL:

sudo yum install -y openssh-server

Create Keys:

Note: This does NOT matter what server you make them on, and the end of the public key, which has your username & computer name, is JUST A COMMENT. You can delete it.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Copy your keys to a safe location!

id_rsa = Private Key
id_rsa.pub = Public Key (Store in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys)

Now just follow my guide on setting up your server w/ your RSA Keys. You should keep these keys in a safe place.
