Default Ssh keeps asking for a password

If ssh keeps asking for a password even though the documentation has been followed to setup ssh without a password. The following may assist to fix the issue:

Ensure the home directories (cd $HOME) of the accounts on the primary and standby servers have the following permissions:

[oracle@avisit01]$ ls –al .
drwxr-xr-x 40 oracle dba 4096 Sep 17 02:46 .

If the permissions are 775 or 777 then ssh may keep asking for a password. Change permission
chmod 755 .

Also ensure that permission of all the files in the .ssh directory are set to 600
