I do not want to put my database credentials information in properties and hibernate.cfg.xml file.
Can anyone suggest me that it is possible in hibernate to secure that credentials and if yes then how it can be achieved.

Why not? Credentials have to go somewhere (not Hibernate's rules - just one of the the basic requirements for connecting to a database).
You could write your application to prompt for these, that way the would not be stored. Or you could swap to a database that support single sign on (DB2 or SQL Server for example).

Or use JNDI, and store them in another different place on the server.
But the basic point is sound--why do you care?
It is sorta covered in the
