SSH without a password or passphrase

I try to work with mpi (massege passing interface). i have a command called mpd boot, this command let us spawn mpd on compute nodes, however it blocked.

i should use SSH, but without password and without a passphrase that comes from the public/private method.

does anyone use SSH without any password or passphrase, if so i need a way because i already searched but i didn't find a method.

plz help. really i need it.

You don't need a passphrase to use public/private keys with SSH. If you follow the instructions I have Here, just press enter when ssh-keygen prompts you for a passphrase to use. This will set it to no passphrase.
