Hi Ivan,

the location for settings.xml and security-settings.xml is by default your home directory ($HOME/.m2/) which is by default secured by your login (username/password). This is the first barrier and the second one of course is, as Scott wrote is that in none of them is a clear text password.

Kind regards
