Storage of passwords for external storage

security

#1

Hello.

When setting up an external storage that uses username/password credentials, how is the information stored? my primary concern is with the security of having users passwords stored somewhere in the system. i assume it is encrypted somehow, but i wonder if it is done in a way that does not even let administrators have the ability to decrypt the passwords.

thank you,

Hi,
Did you ended up finding the information? I am also in a similar situation, I am not keen on storing the passwords on the server, but it (SMB share) won’t work if I use the option of “Log-in credentials,saved in session”.
So, I might have to drop the idea of using Nextcloud :frowning:
