Can we encrypt Trusted authentication Shared secret password in BOXIR3 sp2



I am working on business objects XI R3 sp2 .net sdk. I have configured Trusted authentication. Now my secret password is in trustedprincipal.conf file without encryption.

Can we encrypt this password?

trusted-authentication-boxir2-shared-secret-questi Forum explains that method as below can be used to pass shared secred password.

ITrustedPrincipal=CrystalEnterprise.getSessionMgr().createTrustedPrincipal(username, cmsname, "MySecret");

But I think this is in Java. Is .net SDK supports this type of method?

I am using code as shown below which accepts only user name and cms name as passords

Dim ISessionMgr As SessionMgr = New CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.SessionMgr

Dim ITrustedPrincipal As TrustedPrincipal = ISessionMgr.CreateTrustedPrincipal("UNameS,"cmsName")

and takes secret password from config file.
