I have a MS SQL driver using port 1433 to pass data from eDir to SQL. I
am using a UDF (User Defined Function) to write the password into SQL.
This means, in order to use this function, I must first strip the
nspmDistributionPassword into plain text, then pass it using the UDF
command.

As you would know, this means the password is in plain text when it's
transferred from the engine to the SQL server. My security team is up in
arms over this and my DBA says there's "no secure port for SQL Server"

How can I secure the passing of the password to the SQL server?
