This configuration parameter specifies whether cdash hides (obfuscates) the STDIN. Setting this parameter to true is useful in situations where users enter sensitive data such as login credentials and so forth. The service hides the STDIN data according to the patterns specified in the dash.obfuscate.pattern and dash.obfuscate.regex parameters.

Note:   If the user uses line-editing keys such as left arrow, right-arrow, and so forth on the command line, the obfuscation will fail. The exception is that if a user uses the backspace key, the obfuscation will still occur.

By default, this parameter is set to false.
