Description of problem:
It should be more secure that not to save the password as plaintext in configuration file. Such as the password of Proxy Server in rhsm.conf file, and the password of SNMP in snmp.conf.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhev-hypervisor6-6.4-20130528.0.el6_4
ovirt-node-2.5.0-17.el6_4.5.noarch

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clear install RHEV-H.
2. Configure network with dhcp.
3. On the Red Hat Network page, regist using "Subscription Asset Manager" mode with proxy server.
4. Check the rhsm.conf file.
5. Configure the SNMP.
6. Check the snmp.conf file.

Actual results:
1.After step4, you can find the password of proxy server is saved as plaintext.
2.After step6, you can find the password of snmp server is saved as plaintext.
