Possible to have multiple passwords for game server

What i'm basically trying to do is have multiple passwords, or username and passwords for a game server. The reason for this is because there has been some leaking of the passwords for the games i'm hosting and i'd like to put a stop to it by issuing individual passwords or even usernames+passwords.
I'm pretty sure this can't be done within the games because I don't see an option for it. I'm currently hosting a few games from steam, CS, TF2, and a COD4 server. I don't know if there is anyway to do this, but if anybody has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Password for rcon? or control panel passwords?
Google: TCAdmin for control panel.

Like Mike said, we need to know what password you're talking about to help you. Password to join the server? There can be only one. Different passwords for different admins? Definitely possible, but it depends on what admin plugin you use.

passwords to acutally join the game server to ;lay the game. Normally you can set a single password for a game server, but not multiple. I was wondering if there was anyway to do this. I'll google that and see if it answers my questions.
ps that was a fast resposnse

From my understanding, when setting a server to private you are only limited to one password.

Thanks for the answer. I guess i'll just have to make due with a single password.

It may be possible - I know that can't be done with a stock HLDS install unless things have significantly changed since I've worked with game servers. You may be able to do do that with an admin plugin; maybe configure the plugin to set all the slots on your server as reserved slots, then configure each of your users as a privileged user in the admin plugin configuration. Then, normal users couldn't connect. The only downside is you'd have to set up each user their own admin account, which can be annoying.
I'm not sure which admin plugins are updated anymore. When I worked in the industry it was adminmod, then amxmod, then amxmodx, and recently it's been Mani Admin Plugin. Good luck!

CArmstrong has a point, I would have never thought of that. Mani admin Plugin will allow you to set the server slots to reserved. However, you will manually have to added players steam id and permissions to do this which is time consuming. Mani Admin Plugin only works for source games such as TF2, and CSS. COD4 will not work with Mani Admin.
