Rsync between debian without asking password

How can i execute rsync to transfer files without being asked for the password. Can I do something about private keys?
I am writing a ruby script for backing up files. It should run periodically so I can't be there all the time to enter the password...

you can do rsync over ssh and use passwordless ssh keys (ssh-keygen).
