    node-RED containers can be made secure when using Admin Authorization features using its settings.js file and mounting it to the container. Sounds quite simple, however unlike other containers that let your configure their environments via environment variables whereby the stored credentials are in plaintext, node-RED passwords typically are stored in encrypted format i.e., bcrypt.
