  3. Iulian Murgulet says:


    From what I see the most secure use case for sshpass is to supply a file password (-f option) with chmod 400 passwd_file and a proper owner. And if you want to be more secure, maybe you can use a openvpn tunnel for the remote host and some iptables rules to restrict the ip source of the sshpass host.

    Anyway, you need to use the right tool for your landscape and sometimes functionality is more important than security ; )
