Call Manager Express - user passwords plain text

Is there anyway to encrypt or not display username passwords in the Call Manager CLI?

What is your concern ?

Only the administrator is supposed to be able to look at the router config.

I work for a University. If the faculty knew I could see their passwords, it could be a big problem.

Enabling Secret and Encrypt Passwords

The Enable password is presented in cleartext to provide access control to privileged EXEC mode of the router. Use Enable Secret to encrypt the enable password.

The following example illustrates this configuration:

enable secret secretword1

no enable password

The enable secret command takes precedence over the enable password command if both are configured; they cannot be used simultaneously.

To increase security access, passwords can be encrypted to prevent any unauthorized users from viewing the passwords when packets are examined by protocol analyzers:

The following example illustrates this configuration:
