SFTP SSH Key Auth

I have set up a SFTP Remote Connection and can successfully place a CSV file on a server through SFTP with Password Authentication.  Our vendor wants to use Public/Private key authentication and has provided us with an ssh_rsa .pub  key.  How can I import that key to our PowerSchool SIS platform?  I have investigated Digital Certificate Management and the Key/User/System Trust Stores, but that seems to be SSL certificates, not SSH keys.  I've tried uploading the SSH key, but it seems that it will only accept a SSL certificate.  One cannot log into SSH via an SSL certificate!  Is there anything can can be done?

Thank you to the tech support team.  Key Store > Public/Private Key Pair.  The trick was that both the public AND the private key had to be .pem files.
