Windows Connect:Direct proxy password secure

Wells Fargo is requesting an enhancement to Windows Connect:Direct. Currently when a new user proxy is configured a password has to be entered by the person creating the user proxy. This password, in most cases, is owned by a team other than the NDM administration team with restrictive requirements on its distribution.

We would like a method or tool in Windows Connect:Direct, Sterling Control Center or both that would allow an encrypted account password to be passed to the NDM administrator. That password will then be passed to the NDM sub-system without it being visible to the NDM administrator and the proxy created.

    The NDM administrator should control what the password is for the local user that is used to setup the remote proxy, not the other way around.  The client just needs to know what ID to include as the snodeid in their process scripts.
