Rsync and ssh with passwordless authentifikation

Is it possible to konfigure a passwordless authentifikation in kombination
with ssh.

for example:

to a specific folder on a server named server1 has only user1 access.
the user1 only exists on server1.

server2 wants to replicate a foler from server1 to himself.
the rsync process uses the rsync_user, which exists on both machines.

the rsync process asks every time the job runs for the password for user1.

How can i solve the problem.
Is it possible to work with certificates?
