the best way is to use a trusted connection, you need to use windows authentication for this. or you can use set the username and password and env variables as mentioned on the post below, but it is still not the best option.

There's no such thing.

What do you want really? Encrypt the the connection to SQL Server? Then you need to setup your server correctly. See Enable Encrypted Connections to the Database Engine (SQL Server Configuration Manager)

Another option would be using Integrated Authentication.
