I'm pretty sure RSA autentication isn't supported by Cisco IOS so that
leaves putting the password in an "expect" (or similar wrapper) script, on
the connecting host... Which would be as secure/insecure as access to a
file is there.

Another way might be to not use SSH at all, but enable Kerberos on telnet:

And/or hook the serial-console up to a (reverse) termial-server which
might be a Linux box configured with passwordless SSH, fireing off "cu" or
"console" (the Conserver client) upon successful connect.
