We have written radius custom module to meet the business requirement.

Based on business requirement, in custom module we are getting password based on the username and adding the value to "User-Password" attribute to the radius input packet.
But password attribute is not adding. Based on our observation, PIN_FLD_PASSWD field is string type and the radius attribute PW_USER_PASSWORD is of type "password".

Please let us know how to pass the value by converting from string to password ?

### Steps to Reproduce ###:
Write a radius custom module to meet the following functionalities
1. Get the username from input packet
2. search in /service/* using username
3. Get the password
4. add the password to the input packet.
