Yes, you can do it.

Configure a username and password with enable secret on the device first. Like

Username Cisco secret abcdef

enable secret cisco

Then configure the line console to use a local authentication:

Line con 0

login local

this will force the user to use the secret password defined for the profile.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
