    I need to create users through a shell script, however I do not want to embed the passwords in a file for security reasons. Does anyone have any ideas how I can accomplish this without saving the passwords in a file.

    How many users do you need to create? Database or operating system users?

    If it's database you could probably use Oracle's obfusacation toolkit if you were that concerned. Or you could pick the username and give them instructions to change it to their own password.
