sshpass-Noninteractive ssh password authentication
Posted on: 05/05/2008 04:24 PM

Debian Admin published a guide about using sshpass for accepting an interactive password non-interactively

SSH’s (secure shell) most common authentication mode is called “interactive keyboard password authentication”, so called both because it is typically done via keyboard, and because openssh takes active measures to make sure that the password is, indeed, typed interactively by the keyboard.

Sometimes, however, it is necessary to fool ssh into accepting an interactive password non-interactively. This is where sshpass comes in.
