If I understand what you are asking...

You should not need to change anything in ssh_config to accomplish
no-password logins using OpenSSH. You simply need to append the public
key of the user you wish to authenticate to the authorized_keys file in
the .ssh directory of the home directory for the user allowing access.

It can usually be done with something similar to:

Generate the key for the user to be authenticated:

ssh-keygen -t rsa -N '' -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Copy the public key to the authenticating system and add it to the
authroized keys:

cat id_rsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Hope this helps.
