RE: [suse-security] safety with scp

passwordless auth is not a great idea.
having a passphrase while painful, is no less painful than a password and
helps you...
WinSCP, Putty (pagent) allows you to cache passphrases so you don't have to
re-enter them all the time.
Enter it once, at least if your machine is stolen, the password will no
longer be cached, so the home box is still safe.
