I'm no expert, but I think the credentials are stored per node/target in the 
"iSCSI database" (like /etc/iscsi/send_targets/* and /etc/iscsi/nodes/*/*). 
/etc/iscsi.conf just has the defaults. Probably it would be better to never 
the iscsid.conf, but provide auth information when discovering targets or 
in to nodes/targets. However then the "secrets" would be on the command line 
process list, etc).
