Hi k3npo,

It sounds like when your key pair was created it was configured to use a passphrase. The passphrase is part of the key and is designed to "lock" the key so it can't be used without entering the passphrase. You will be required to enter the passphrase to "unlock" the key each time you want to use it. This is not something that can be stored and automatically entered for you.

It is possible to create a key pair that does not use a passphrase if that is a route you would like to take.

Does this information help clarify?
