I would like to sniff the password while connecting to MySQL 5.7.37. When I dump the workbench, it is clearly shows username and password.

I tired mysql_config_editor to create a username and password. encrypted configuration file is created and , I used cmd & mysql to connect. all good. My question is

I would like to use the configuration file from .net applications, and workbench. Is there any possibility creating the encrypted configuration file and use in application.

Note: windows authentication is possible. for now, we do not want to use windows authentication.
