Secure storage for passwords for admin scripts?

The tricky part here is that some of the scripts need
to authenticate against multiple NT domains. I think
the scheduler service will only provide a connection
to a single domain.

Additionally, I need to authenticate against MS SQL
Servers, using native logins, not NT logins.
