Fail to read JAASAuthData password

Hello,

I have created jython scripts for backup, restore and moving around various items in a Websphere 6.1 environment.
This far I have not been able to read out any passwords (neither cleartext or xor) for JAAS Authdata or Datasource V4 users.
The passwords are always returned as asterisks. I suspects that some security mechanism is behind this and I wonder if there are a way around this.

The example jython script below extract the passwords for all JAAS auth users and prints them as asterisks.
I would like it to print the password either as clear text or in the encrypted form. Can it be done?



I rather do it within jython than parsing the resource.xml file(s).
