Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-6174:
---------------------------------------------

base64 doesn't seem like any kind of improvement to me, we might as well just leave it in
plaintext.

> It is an extremely bad security practice to keep any password, particularly  keystore
password in plain text. it can be easily obfuscated.
