Hiding SMB-password in fstab
In the following article it is explained how you can do that:
that page only shows how to use a credentials file instead of username password in fstab.
i already do this and in some other places I use a script to prompt for a password and then use that which is safer.
so I still haven't found a perfect solution to this in terms of security and auto mounting after reboot.
