I would like to use the stronger, level 5 algorithm, with my local IOS database accounts.  I have  looked and cannot see how to do so.  I realize 'enable secret' will do so but seems only for the enable password.  I would like to apply the stronger encryption to to passwords for locally created accounts.  Is this possible?  Please provide brief example, if so.  Thank you!
