Yes! It is possible to login to a remote SSH server without entering password. We need to use ssh-keygen technology to create public and private keys.

Create ssh-keygen using the command below.

$ ssh-keygen

Copy public keys to remote host using the command below.

$ ssh-copy-id -i /home/USER/.ssh/ REMOTE-SERVER

Note: *Replace USER with user name and REMOTE-SERVER by remote server address.*

The next time we try to login to SSH server, it will allow login without asking password, using the keygen.

I'm wonder how most people securely connect to a Postgres database on a server separate from the app server.

The ActiveRecord docs for a MySQL connection have explicit SSL options, whereas with Postgres it seems one would pass SSL options as documented for libpq.

However a quick Googling returns SO threads with suggestions to use SSH tunnels. Which I guess could be managed with something like AutoSSH.

I'd love to hear from others. Is one method faster than the other, or easier to maintain?
