    If you are wanting to place a passphrase in memory via ssh-agent (or something similar) w/o user interaction, you are defeating the whole purpose of this feature.
    If you don't want human interaction to get the passphrase back into memory when ssh-agent dies, don't use passphrases.

    Can someone tell me how I can enter a passphrase for an indentity inside
    an agent using ssh-add authomatically. I mean non-interactive.
    I have a need to do this from a script.?
