    Creating Encrypted Passwords

    This example encrypts password t1meout1 and creates a password for privilege level 10.

    1. Enable and configure the password. The 0 keyword specifies that you are entering an unencrypted password.
      host1(config)#enable password level 10 0 t1meout1
    2. Display the encrypted password.
      host1(config)#exit
      host1#show secret
                     Current Password Settings

      14      7 (password)   dq]XG`,%N"SS7d}o)_?Y   inherited
      15      7 (password)   dq]XG`,%N"SS7d}o)_?Y   inherited 

    You or users with high privilege levels can now use the encrypted password, dq]XG`,%N"SS7d}o)_?Y, with the password command.
