I believe if you enable:

#PermitEmptyPasswords no

and change to "yes" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, then restart you sshd, it should allow no passwords. Personally, I recommend against remote access w/o passwords.

I echo the concern about empty passwords. Without the password any hacker can ssh to any of your computers and get on. This is very bad! Even a stupid Hacker could delete your entire directory. And a smart one would delete your entire computer!
