How to encrypt passwords that are sent through API-RPC requests?

Question

How to encrypt passwords that are sent through API-RPC requests? On the API-RPC guide there is only information how to insert plain-language passwords:

<passwd>123123</passwd>

Answer

Plesk uses https protocol to receive connections from API-RPC so requests are sent to:

https://<your-host-or-IP>:8443/enterprise/control/agent.php

So passwords are already being encrypted on the connection stage. That's why it is not required to encrypt passwords using API syntax.
