ESS / ODBC Security Question

When setting up or editing an ODBC external data source in FMP you're given three options for authentication:

 

• Prompt for user name & password

• Specify user name and password (applies to all users)

• Use Windows Authentication (Single Sign-On)

 

Out of caution I've been using only the first.

Question about the second: where/how does FMP store the user name & password entered?  In the database?  On the server computer?  How secure is this option?  It would be a great convenience to use, but security concerns prevail.
