My qusetion is about how passwords are stored if you choose to save them in a "stored session". What is to prevent someone who gains access to your hard disk from recovering them?
I use public/private keys that are stored on a removable disk where possible, but that doesn't work for all the systems that I need to access. To date I have not saved any passwords with stored sessions because of this concern, but it would be convient to do so if they were stored securely.
Sorry if this has been covered before, I have looked but not found the answer.
