Several times per week and need to login to around 120 AIX servers from
I am using ssh under putty to accomplish this.
I coded a simple *batch *file to establish all 120 sessions. The problem
that if I don’t provide the password for each session, I have to
to each session and type it in.
The format of each record is as follows:
The above works fine but it introduces a security issue. As you can see
password can be readily obtained by reading the file.
If I hide the file, this will only delay its finding.
Is there a way in which I can write the batch file in Ruby and hide or
somehow encrypt the password, so even if someone edits the file the
can’t be understood?
