Why is the VPN password stored in plain text in
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections? Is there a way to let the GUI

Note that the file is read-only by root.  If somebody has root on your
machine, they can do a lot more than read your password.

If the disk gets stolen the password is accessible. Thanks for your
other suggestions, will work through them.
