I'm looking for a way to hide my credentials in fstab for lines like
Code: [ Select ]
//hostname/share  smbfs  /mnt/sharename   defaults,username=user%password    0   0

The problem with the above line is that it appears in the process list and that the password is in cleartext. Using credentials=file is a better start but this is still in plaintext. Can't I hash the password with md5 or something?
