password encryption for CME web page login

Unanswered Question
May 5th, 2009

is is possible to have the router (2851, advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T, Cisco Unity Express 7.0.1) encrypt the password used for the CUE web login so that it is not displayed in plain text? Service password-encryption is set on the 2851.

Thanks! Steve

I have this problem too.

If you're talking about the 'web admin' configuration there is a 'web admin system secret' option. What's the exact configuration you're trying to hide?

This is the config snippet

ephone 11

device-security-mode none

mac-address 0005.0005.0005

ephone-template 1

username "steve.steve" password plaintext

speed-dial 1 915551234567 label "Bob"

speed-dial 2 91234567 label "Home"

speed-dial 3 91234567 label "Mobile"

type 7960

button 1:31


So the password in the above just shows up in plaintext. That's the bit i was hoping to have encrypted (just like passwords are when you set service password-encryption on.

Hi Steve,

Correct - there doesn't appear a way to change the visibility of these passwords.

Is this causing issues for your users?
