You could encrypt the values using the Encrypt(string, key) function.

For Example...


On Initial Page:
 
<cfset DataToBeEncrypted = URLEncodedFormat("This is the Text That Will Be Encrypted")>
<cfset DataToBeEncrypted = Encrypt(DataToBeEncrypted, "MyKey")>
<cflocation url="http://www.mysite.com/index.cfm?Info=#DataToBeEncrypted#" addtoken="No">
 
 
Index.cfm:
 
<cfset DeCryptedData = Decrypt(url.Info, "MyKey")>
<cfset DeCryptedData = URLDecode(DeCryptedData)>
<cfoutput>DeCryptedData</cfoutput>

FORM THE INITIAL PAGE
 
 
    <cfset user = #URLEncodedFormat(trim(form.username))#>
    <cfset pass = #URLEncodedFormat(trim(form.password))#>
    <cfset user = Encrypt(user, "MyKey")>    
    <cfset pass = Encrypt(pass, "MyKey")>
    <cflocation url="https://www.mysite.com/index.cfm?user=#user#&pass=#pass#"addtoken="No">                 
 
 
 
THE CATCH PAGE:
 
 
<cfif isdefined('url.user') AND isdefined('url.pass') AND url.user neq '' and url.pass NEQ ''>
<cfset user = Decrypt(url.user, "MyKey")>
<cfset pass = Decrypt(url.pass, "MyKey")>
<cfset form.username = URLDecode(user)>
<cfset form.password = URLDecode(pass)>
</cfif>
