So? That doesn't mean the stack needs to be password protected. Just the data encrypted. Most data isn't even protected by the password protection. He would need to be encoding data as script constants. Unless he's doing that he's really not complying with the regulations because anyone can get LC and get the data. Use the encrypt/decrypt commands and prompt the user for the password.
