I am trying to setup password-less login into my localhost because it's required for a tutorial. I went through the normal steps of generating an rsa key and appending the public key to
authorized_keys but I am still prompted for a password. I've also enabled
/etc/ssh_config. Following other suggestions I've seen, I tried:
chmod go-w ~/ chmod 700 ~/.ssh chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
But the problem persists.
Here is the output from ssh -v localhost:

Any suggestions? I'm running OSX 10.8.
