I am developping a java application which performs a checkout on a cvs repository which is secured with SSH.

This application must use 100% java libraries. I use these libraries:
- cvs client implementation is javacvs (
- SSH layer is JSch (

I can access the repository using cvs.exe with the setting of
CVS_RSH="C:\program files\TortoiseCVS\TortoisePlink.exe" -i "C:\mykey.ppk"
and I don't have to set any password in CVSROOT, I would like to reproduce it in my program.

My problem is :
In my java program I use a pserver connection over a SSH tunnel,
but I still need to provide the password for CVS connection, which is not acceptable for this program.

Can anyone help?
Is it possible to connect using pserver without having to provide a password ?
Is there any more appropriate connection method ?
Is there any documentation about pserver authentication protocol ?
