How to encrypt stored passwords in Oracle 8i?

Does Oracle 8i have the ability to encrypt stored passwords?

Does Oracle 8i have the ability to encrypt stored passwords? If not, are there any plug-ins/fixes that exist for this version of Oracle that will allow the passwords to be encrypted?
In Oracle 8i, the tool to encyprt and decrypt data is the DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT. In Oracle 10g, Oracle is now using the DBMS_CRYPTO supplied package, which is better than its predecessor.
