Hide my shell commands

I am writing a tool that connects using SSH to a remote server and perform some actions (through root)
However - I would like to hide my operations so they will be hard to track.

I tried STRACE on the SSHD process and saw all the traffic going there so I am quite transparent to STRACE
  • thought I might send my commands with ASCII code it would be hard to understand... but I don't know how to do it. even a simple LS command.
  • Do you know how can I hide it in another way ?

Thanks Smilie

Not only did you double post but I can think of no legitimate reason why you'd want to cover your tracks like this. No hacking related posts are permitted.
