      Description

      When configuring mariabackup SST method for Galera in 10.2.13, you are required to put a clear text password in /etc/my.cnf.d/xtrabackup.cnf. Need a more secure way to provide authentication information to mariabackup SST method since clear text passwords in files are a major security violation.
