You need to use the credentials=pathtofile/file in the fstab options.

Then in the file you entries like:

username=user
password=verysecurepassword

The file I used was .smbpw down in my home directory with readonly
permissions for the owner.

I used a full path such as /home/user/.smbpw in the credentials line.

Check out the man pages.  I think that is where I found this.
