    GEODE-1958: Removing PasswordUtil

    [View the original JIRA ticket here.](
    `` contained methods used to encrypt a password to be stored in `cache.xml`,
which was an unsafe way to handle security. As a result, most methods in ``
were removed _except_ `decrypt(String password)`, since we want to maintain backwards compatibility.
`decrypt(String password)` has been deprecated, and references to encrypting passwords have
been removed.
