That hasn't got anything to do with tomcat. You should either be using an
encoding scheme
at code level, or if you feel your application-to-database link is secure,
use database in-built methods
to encode/decode the passwords.I don't know how good ole' Oracle does it,
but in mySQL there are 
functions like 'encrypt','des-encrypt','password' etc.

Subject: help: want to encrypt Tomcat user passwords 


I am using jdbcrealm to store the username and passwords in the Oracle 9I
database. But th passwords are stored as plain Texts. I want to encrypt the
passwords. How can I do it? Is there any InBuilt feature in Tomcat?

Thanx in advance
