IPS Password Encryption

Does 6.0(4)E1 support password encryption such as for user-profiles and auto update accounts? I don't see it referenced in the documentation but just wanted to confirm. I feel this is a must have feature for a security device. Thank you in advance.

Yes, sensitive config items such as network access user-profile passwords and host auto update passwords are encrypted by the sensor.

Re: IPS Password Encryption

When I do a 'show configuration' from CLI or 'copy current-config ftp:' it shows the user-profile and auto update passwords in clear text. Do I have to enable something to encrypt or even mask out the passwords? We need this for configuration backup/management.
