Tramp uses password-cache.el. Check variable password-cache-expiry. Its
default value is 16 (passwords expire after 16 seconds). If you change
this value to t, passwords do not expire during the lifetime of your
Emacs session.

They won't be stored in a file, just kept in memory.

Tramp is also compatible with eshell. See the Tramp manual for use cases.
