silent passwords


        We are setting up a small moo for a study in colaborative
        electronic workplace. It has been requested that we have a password
        (connection etc) that will not echo/display the password when
        the user logs in or changes the password. I connot see how this
        can be done without client knowledge (a colleage claims it can 
        be done but does not have any details) - Am I missing something?

        All Suggestions welcome,

        Thanks in advance
