Is it possible to encrypt and use a password in a dip script? If not, anyone
would suggest a secure way instead. Thanks in advance.
I have a sh script that FTP's to another machine and downloads some
files. I currently have the username and password in the script:
ftp -n <<EOF
user foouser foopassword
Is there any way to encrypt the password?? I would like to make it at
least a little difficult for someone to get the password : - )
The script is run as root so its not a problem to change permissions.
