You can encrypt user and password information stored in MaxL scripts.

The following MaxL Shell invocation generates a public-private key pair that you can use to encrypt a MaxL script.

essmsh -gk

The following MaxL Shell invocation encrypts the input MaxL script, obscuring user name and password, and changing the file extension to .mxls.

essmsh -E scriptname.mxl PUBLIC-KEY

Nested scripts are also encrypted. To avoid this and encrypt only the base script, use -Em.

The following MaxL Shell invocation decrypts and executes the MaxL script.
