We are using VirtualMin on our servers running CentOS 6.x and now we want to implement public/private keys for SSH logins. My question is it possible to logon to VirtualMin with public/private keys instead of root passwords?

As far as I know it's not built-in into virtualmin, so you'll have to do it manually on the host like normal...

So yes, it should be possible, just create the keys and import them into /home/server-name/.ssh/authorized_keys file ... Don't forget to set security on this file to something like 600 and the .ssh folder can be 700...
