I am trying to login to the remote machine using username & password(clear text) through ssh while using expect script but i dont want the password to be seen by anyone in the script, so how can i encrypt the password through md5sum or openssl in the script so that the authentication to the remote machine can be excepted through encrypted password but without signing the ssh keys between server & client.
Any solution/assistance/advice will be appreciated.
ssh auth keys makes more sense, as above, but another option is ssh-agent.
Basically you login to ssh-agent manually, supplying user/passwd when prompted; then any process run from that session can access those credentials automatically.
