Is there a good way of doing this ? I know that one way is to have a key
with a null keyphrase, and another way is to have sshagent running. The null
passphrase is a problem if the destination box is ever cracked, and I'm not
sure how sshagent works when you need to have background scripts (e.g.
launched from cron) using ssh. I don't suppose there is a magic bullet, but
I'm open to suggestions.
