You might want to look at ssh public key authentication - you can set this up so you do not need a password at all: security is handled by your public / private keys. just search this board for more information on how to set this up.
Once you have done this, to connect to another computer you just ssh othercomputer and you are presented with a shell on the other computer. No further login authentication is needed.
