This is more of an ssh question really, and might be better answered in an
ssh specific forum (say, the newsgroup

But, one way is to use ssh-keygen to create a public/private key pair, and
put the public key on the remote side (don't use a passphrase, of course).

But this doesn't realy offer a lot of security.  Anyone with physical
access can then take your private key and use it wherever they like.

I'm not sure how useful something like ssh-agent is in this case, I have
no experience with it.  But maybe that's what you need.
