    Masking\Encryption passwors stored in configuration files

      Hi All,

       

      We have a few integration points which use a specific set of user and password for connecting to the interfaces.

      We have currently added these passwords as configurations under runmodes, so that we can configure on per environment\runmode basis.

       

      The passwords in these configurations are stored in plain text and anyone having access to CQ will be able to read these values.

       

      I am polling the group for checking if there are options for masking\encrypting the passwords in configurations so that they are not visible in plain text. Also if you have any other ways to "hide" the passwords from the users, please suggest the same.
