Password protection

I have a running database server (Firebird) and want to connect to it
through Python code.

Is there a way to save a password so that it could be read and autoconnected
without writing it in plain text?

Is there a way to connect to a database (in a DB API 2.0 compliant module)
without writing password in plain text in db.connect statement?

Is there a way to do it in general - I mean hide, but not delete password.
