Can we use encrypted password in shell script to execute CLI command ?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • We are using shell script to execute CLI command, like as:
$JBOSS_HOME/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --controller=$Host:$Port  --user=User_Name --password=xxxx --command="xxxx""
  • We don't want to use clear text password which is able to see with ps command.

  • Is there a way we can use encrypted password in shell script ?

  • Is it possible to secure the password when using JBoss CLI ?

  • how can we encrypt the passwords for the key and truststore when we use SSL enabled CLI
