I've been writing a program using Python and now I need to store some passwords (for FTP servers). I need to make sure these aren't visible to anyone. And it also means that I can't store a non-reversible hash of the password (like on a webserver) because I'm not checking if the password is right. All I'm doing is relaying the passwords to other people. What would be the best option to storing my passwords?
