Need Help Setting up SSH

I am running Red Hat 8 on my only computer, that is connected to cable. I have a fresh install of Red Hat, and I need help setting up my ssh. I am running sshd, but what do i need to do set up the keys, and users. Keep in mind that I am very new to this.

You don't need keys unless you want passworless logins.
Just ssh to your box using:
ssh user@host

Then enter the password for your user account and you should be in.

ssh presupposes 2 computers one to login from and one to login to. So I am a little stumped by your post. Are you trying to log into redhat's up2date server with ssh??
