The primary technology will involve ssh-agent and perhaps a little utility called keychain. Overview: the keychain process retains the rsa or dsa key for presentation to ssh-agent when a remote login is initiated, thereby providing password-less login for remote admin.

It is a little tricky, but works very well when configured correctly. The keychain process is called from the user's shell rc or profile to work for those sessions. Google and man pages should help you for the specifics.
