Encrypt JMX console password

Hi all,
I'm using the JMX console security as it written here.
Everything works fine and i'm getting a box for entering the username/password when i'm trying to get into: http://localhost:8080/jmx-console, but my question is:
The JMX console storing the username/password in a plain text file(jmx-console-users.properties) is there any way to configure the jboss to encrypt this file? so the jmx-console-users.properties will contain encrypted username/password?

Shay,

Welcome to JavaRanch

Storing the username/password in properties file and authenticating is one way of securing the application. There are other places where you can store usrename and (encrypted) password. You can use DB authentication for doing this. There's a login module for doing DB authentication which even accepts a parameter for encrypting the user password. At present, i am unable to locate the JBoss documentation which has an example for this.
