Writing password parameters to configuration files in customer services

New Contributor

I'm working on adding a custom service to Cloudera and I need to get the password that the user enters to start my application.I see other examples

that write the passwords out using using a configWriter but those get written out in plain text.  Is there a way to get the password or to write the

password out so it doesn't show up as plain text?
