"When asked to enter a passphrase, do so. An ssh key without a passphrase is completely vulnerable if stolen."
That's true, but how to do cron jobs? An 'expect' script literally has your unhashed passwd. Only multiple key pairs I guess.
@gemlog @adamd you can do something similar with keypass or 1password, or just pick memorable passwords for your keys like "this is a phrase for tilde town". Knowing how to use ssh-agent is really helpful for making lots of keys more manageable.
