There is putty utility called PLINK Usage:

$out = .\plink.exe -ssh $($hostIP) -l $($attribute_user) -pw $($attribute_password) -batch super cat /etc/opt/somefile_or_any_other_command

You have to sotre SSL certificate of remote server before first connection. This can be done by:

echo Y | .\plink.exe -ssh $($hostIP) -l $($attribute_user) -pw $($attribute_password) exit
