Well, yes, although I'd perhaps word it a little differently - i.e.
if you need a key of type ssh-rsa, 'ssh-keygen -t rsa' is the way to
generate it. (And if you need a certificate for
ssh-rsa-cert-v01 at openssh.com, you can proceed to sign the generated
key via the '-s' option to ssh-keygen - I haven't personally tried
that though.)
