Unhappy ssh : is there a way to not have to enter the password?

I have to run a script every time I log back in to my computer. This command maps a few ports on my localhost to act as ports on another server. However because this command uses ssh it asks for the password so I cannot automatize it with a script at boot time.

Is there any way to run this command without being asked for a password?

ssh -L 8081:

Thanks in advance
