I am new to jboss AS. I want to secure my jboss admin-cosole password. so that I planned to encrypt the password.

we are using Jboss AS 6 version. if any one tell me the steps how to encrypt the password exist in the file

this step is just i tried to encrypt password.when i hit this command in command line

Java -cp lib/jboss-logging.jar:lib/jbosssx.jar $admin

result : I got encoded password.

after that paste it in the file like admin=encoded data [username=password]

I think it is not working .when I try to login the admin-console (http://localhost:8080/admin-console/login.seam?conversationID=8) by using admin/admin username and is throwing invalid password.if i used the encoded password then i able to login.
