First you need a IOS image that supports SSH on your router.

Then you need some terminal application with the same support.

To generate keys (enter in global): cry key generate rsa

Then to limit the access vty with only SSH (enter in line vty): transport input ssh

Then there are some optional commands to tweak SSH as you desire.
