    I'm having users authenticate to my IPPS with a username and password via CiscoIPPhoneInput.  The password doesn't show up on-screen since the input flag marks it as a password field, but it's still sent across the line in plaintext.
    It seems that SSL is not supported - I receive a 'host not found' error when I try.  What are my options?

    SSL phone services are on the near term roadmap, but not yet announced.
