+Securing Connections
+--------------------
+
+Airflow uses `Fernet <https://github.com/fernet/spec/>`__ to encrypt passwords in the
connection
+configuration. It guarantees that a password encrypted using it cannot be manipulated or
read without the key.
+
+For information on configuring Fernet, look at :ref:`Generating a Connection URI <security/fernet>`.
 
 Review comment:
   It has been moved to security page: 
   https://airflow.readthedocs.io/en/latest/security.html#securing-connections
   Now I want to add a link to the [security page](https://airflow.readthedocs.io/en/latest/security.html#securing-connections)
on the [connection page](https://airflow.readthedocs.io/en/latest/howto/connection/index.html]
.  Many people may not notice the Fernet configuration if it is in the security page.
