I don't have a Crowd 4.1 instance I can check, but the docs do indicate that from Crowd 4.2 credentials will be automatically encrypted. Given you've got a key on 4.1.1, I was wondering if this meant that it was OPTIONAL on your version, but cannot find any docs to back this up. 

If you're looking to encrypt the credentials, I'd suggest upgrading - and given 4.1.1 was release just over two years ago and there've been numerous security upgrades since, this should be done anyway.
