I've created passphrase protected RSA key. The public key is installed on remote server in
authorized_keys in the user's
From requesting server, I can SSH into the remote server without a problem, but I need to enter passphrase every time I do this.
I want to use this key for a Munin server to SSH into a Munin node and get data, so the procedure fails because of the passphrase.
I have thought of two options:
- Remove the passphrase from the key.
- Save the passphrase somewhere, maybe in a configuration file?
Is there a better solution?
ssh-agent is supposed to do something like this, but I cannot find concise information about it.
