    Where are NetworkManager passwords for user-specific connections stored?

    I've encrypted my home folder. I wonder how to protect Wi-Fi passwords. I've recognized that some passwords are stored in /etc/NetworkManager. (I've this directory unencrypted.) But when I uncheck "Availble to all users", I don't know where it is stored. It does not seem to ve stored in /etc/NetworkManager. Is it stored in encrypted ~, or somewhere else?

    My understanding is that passwords are stored in a keyring, either Gnome keyring or KDE Wallet.

    Thank you. It seems to be true: http://blog.schmichael.com/2008/10/3...gnome-keyring/

    Since it is stored it in ~/.gnome2/keyrings/, it is encrypted and thus OK. Well, not 100% OK, because information in /etc/NetworkManager provide some information (what wifi hotspots I use => where I use notebook), but it is relatively OK.
