create an ssh key
ssh-keygen -t dsa
don't give it a password.
Then copy the public key to the box you want to ssh to.
The first time you connect with ssh you will have to answer yes for the finger print for each new box you connect to.
After that you can connect with out a password using SSH. This works very well for bash, perl scripts etc...

Eww. Passphrase free SSH keys are bad.
If you really must have one then use the authorized_keys options for that key to limit what that key can do. Restricting the source addresses that can use the key at a minimum.
