Yes, that's basically right. know_hosts is merely for identifying the crytographic
signatures of servers. authorized_keys(2) is the place you put public RSA/DSA keys
in. and you'd almost certainly want that in your home directory, not as a
site-wide configuration (permissions on the directories play a part as well).

The original poster needs to return to the man page and read a little more
carefully. :-)
