Curator with shield-enabled cluster - Password in clear text


We have a three node shield-enabled ES cluster in INT environment. The curator script packed into a cron job would however have the admin password in clear text. Is there any other way to run the script without having to expose the password this way?

Thanks for your thoughts on this.

Unfortunately not, with the current release of Curator.
