I have some cron jobs that need to ssh to other hosts to do stuff (rsync and cvs via ssh, etc.) On Linux, the only way to make this work was to use non-password-protected ssh certs. On OSX, is there some keychain magic I can do to tell it that these scripts are pre-authorized, without having to leave the private key files unprotected? (I'm guessing not, but I figured it was worth asking.)
Update / Summary: Crontabs still work (they are run by launchd). Some speculation that maybe they will stop working in 10.5. No easy answers to the keychain question, but ydna has some interesting tricks.
