Encrypt ESS Data Source Password

FileMaker does not provide a way to encrypt the password used to access an ESS datasource. (The excuse in the manual is particularly feeble, even for FileMaker.)

 

Does anyone know of a workaround, so that a hacker who successfully logs in with full privileges can't use Manage External Data Sources to see ESS data source passwords?

 

Thanks,

 

Tom
