-bash: ssh.keygen: command not found

Trying to configure git which requires that I generate a SSH key using
ssh.keygen -t rsa -C ""
I get the message -bash: ssh.keygen: command not found

After doing some google search, I installed openssh using yum, but that did not help. I also tried yum install ssh-keygen with no success.

Can anybody assist or point me in right direction?

Github help indicates ssh dash keygen; not ssh dot keygen
