You can run them without passphrases, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Instead, use keys with passphrases and use ssh-agent.  You'll only
have to enter the passphrase once with ssh-add (but at least you
*will* enter it), then you're good to go for the remainder of the
session.  On KDE and GNOME, I believe that they start ssh-agent for
you if they detect the presence of ~/.ssh.  You'll still need to do
the ssh-add.  If you created your first ssh key in this login session,
you may need to logout and relogin to have it start ssh-agent for you.

No clue.
