Archive feature uses SCP; stores password in clear-text?

I would really like to use IOS's archive feature, but can't figure out a way to do it securely. Here's the conundrum:

  • FTP allows me to store the encrypted credentials ("ip ftp password") in the config, but the file transfer is sent clear-text on the wire.
  • SCP allows me to encrypt the file transfer, but I have to store the credentials in clear-text ("path scp://username:password@server....")

This seems to me to be a pretty clear oversight in the feature. I would submit a feature request, but can't find a link for that at the website.
