Encrypting authentication

When logging into salesforce through the API, is there any way that we can encrypt the password?  It appears to be sending it across as plain text.

 

Thanks.

If you're using SSL (which is the default from the WSDL), its not plain text.

So, by default, the password does get encrypted when sending in authentication information?

 

Thanks for the reply!

The password, along with everything else, gets encrypted because all traffic is going through SSL.
