} Does anyone have any suggestions?
Can I suggest instead of doing hardcoded passwords into scripts, if you
trust the machine you're coming from enough to do that, do:
/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen (don't enter a passphrase when asked)
You will then have a file, .ssh/identity.pub, which you can put on remote
machines as .ssh/authorized_keys, which will allow non-password access to
those machines for both ssh and scp.
It's better than putting passwords into scripts. And the only way someone
can spoof it is if they have your .ssh/identity file.
