in reply to Protecting your DBI user/password in scripts?

This naturally requires a username/password to connect.

Not necessarily - some rdbms allow external authentication. Eg, OS user 'acct' can access database account 'acct' without specifying a login/password.

This may not seem secure, but imo it's better than having your password in plaintext somewhere.
