I mount my NAS over smd with the following in the fstab (not my actual values):
mount -t cifs -o user=[User Name],password=[Password] //192.168.1.1/share /mnt/nas
That works fine, but in the fstab everyone can read my password…
Is there a possibility to hide or even encrypt the password?
Yes. Use a credential file that only root has access to.
Also, as a side note, consider using a systemd automount for network locations. It is more resilient when the network isn’t available.
<ipaddess or host name>/sharename /mnt/nas cifs x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.idle-timeout=1min,rw,user,credentials=/path/to/creds/nas.cred,iocharset=utf8,vers=2.0 0 0
Thanks, that was fast!
with the password works flawless and I changed fstab as you advised.
