I suspect that this has already been asked and discussed, but my attempts to
search were all unsuccessful.
When I run my mysql client, I can use this syntax:
mysql -unobody -psecretpassword
and when I do a ps, I see this:
3606 pts/2 S+ 0:00 mysql -unobody -px xxxxx
The password is removed from the ps command as well as from
/proc/3606/cmdline . If it's anywhere else, I can't find it.
Can this feature be added to the "--passphrase" option of gpg? It's my
humble opinion that this would improve the security of batch processing over
either --passphrase-fd or --passphrase-file .
