you can define a for a token to be used inside kamailio.cfg by using -A
command line parameter. So when you start kamailio, fetch the password
from your secure system by what so ever meaning, then build the database
url based on it and run kamailio with:

kamailio - A DBURL='mysql://user:passwd@dbhost/kamailio' ...

You may need to enclose in double quotes inside the single quotes, I am
not sure at this moment, but sometime she shell 'eats' a pair of quotes,
so just try with it if first fails ...
