Re: scp in a script with keys and passphrase



Expect can automate task of typing passphrase in a expect script - but ask yourself a question what good is the passphrase if you have to store it in clear text?
 
I know that it may not be the answer for your question, but perhaps you should think of either other way of transfering these files (ftp/rsync/nfs/http) or generating another set of keys without of passphrase?

the "expect" package may be what you're looking for.  from the rpm description:

---
Expect is a tcl extension for automating interactive applications such
as telnet, ftp, passwd, fsck, rlogin, tip, etc. Expect is also useful
for testing those applications. Expect makes it easy for a script to
control another program and interact with it.

Install the expect package if you want to develop scripts that
interact with interactive applications. You will also need to install
the tcl package.

it's available for RHEL 4 & 5.
