Goal

You want to define a partner link that refers to a web service secured by basic authentication. The partnerLink definition looks like:

<partnerLinkBinding name="PartnerProfileService">
<property name="wsdlLocation">PartnerProfileWSRef.wsdl</property>
<property name="basicUsername">userid</property>
<property name="basicPassword">password</property>
<property name="basicHeaders">credentials</property>
</partnerLinkBinding>


But the password is in clear text and you want to know how to obfuscate the password.
