Obscure Passwords

We are looking to store customer passwords for their ADSL connections. 
However we do not want to show it on the screen without perhaps clicking 
on the field and also look at encryption, however that would have to be 
two way. Which is not always secure, due to having to store a key, but 
it is the only way to retrieve the password if required.

This is a custom module, which I am comfortable in writing, I'm just not 
too sure of how to obscure the text without clicking and encrypting the 
text within the field.

Any pointers would be great.

Many thanks.
