The error message above is from ssh, not rdiff-backup.  First do what
you need to do with ssh, so that the user for whom your kcron scheduled
job is run can log into the remote host without providing a password and
get a shell prompt.

If you're also new to SSH key-based authentication, Google for:

        authorized_keys howto

Once the user on the local host can log into the remote host without
providing a password, then you can return to rdiff-backup.
