decrypted tacacs-server key

Hi,

does anybody know if I can use a encrypted algorith for password in order these password cannot be decrypted with any software? When I use "service password-encryption" command, password is encrypted with a Cisco proprietary weak encryption algorithm. It can be decrypted

For example, using these commands:

service password-encryption

username cisco password cisco

In the running-config, I can see this command in the configuration:

username cisco password 7 05080F1C2243

that can be decrypted.

Regards,

Hi,

if your IOS supports it you can type: username lol  secret passlol

and it will show like this:

username lol secret 5 $1$DW1d$4XwHkGHQmBpp2w7G4skS9.
