Automate SSH login without password

Here are a quick reminder to automate an ssh login without providing a password:
On the source machine

ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 2048
ssh-copy-id -i /home/user/.ssh/ user@oraclehost (target machine)
ssh user@oraclehost

Enter the password to connect to the target machine. Now you are ready to login without entering the password.
