I have posted a list of such resources a while back (you can either look

About your concerns, I don't think automated telnet/ssh access (using some
script, which means you'll be storing the password for access somewhere on
the disk, either as a different file, or as a part of the code) is more
secure than rsh to a router with privilege level 1 (you can create a user,
and using the aaa new-model authentication model, you can create a
privilege level for that user, specifying exactly what commands that user
is allowed to use) for example.
