I'm not aware of a way to encrypt passwords yet. IBM's Host On Demand
product supports SSL (secure sockets layer), which will do this. However,
it is not yet clear about putting the server parts of this product on an
AS/400—requires Java, for one thing. But it might work with an AIX or NT
server. HOD info at <http://www.networking.ibm.com/hex/hexprod_en.html>.
