Resolution

Both the User Name and the Password are encrypted by default when sent on the wire, this is true even when the system has not been configured to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

To have ALL communications encrypted configure SSL per the instructions in chapter 3 of the Web Client Installation and Configuration document.
