Account data stored in Configuration Mgmt DB

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My company wants to create a configuration management database to hold
details on how its IT systems, servers, application and processes all
hang together.  this is especially useful for change and release
management.  They also want to store info on user, application and
systems accounts including usernames and passwords that are essential
for operation and administrations of the services.  I think this extra
step needs to be very well secured and managed as the users of the
database do not need to know all the passwords, only the ones relevant
to their jobs, and also the accounts give different levels of access to
the systems.  Can anyone give me advice on how to do this, if it's
something you've developed yourself or a commercial product?
