    If the password is encrypted the user would need to provide a passphrase to decrypt it. Unless there's a persistent authentication mechanism in place (like ssh-agent) this would require an interactive passphrase entry, which I'm guessing isn't what you'd want.

    Well yes.. But they would need access to the source code. In my example I would compile it to an executable (e.g. PerlApp). Not perfect but allows us to use the utility..
