Smile how to write encrypt form of password in pexpect script?

Hi, all

I write a script like this

telnet_cmd = "telnet %s" %(host_name)

child = pexpect.spawn(telnet_cmd)
child.logfile = sys.stdout
child.expect('Username: ')

while the password is seen by everyone. I am wondering any method to replace this?

I tried base64, but definitely, everyone also could decode the base64 password.

So, any other method to do this?
