Need documentation with a graphic chart of how openssh public key encryption works.

I have to sell a potential customer about using openssh with public rsa/dsa public key encryption instead of spending money on a proprietary, expensive solution.

I've seen slide shows and such at HP shows. There are pictures of keys and little pictures explaining the process.

Sadly, my google skills can not come up with the document.

Criteria:
2 points for a try unless it looks like point fishing.
10 points for any document or link that fully meets this request.

1 point for a request for further clarification or data.
