This has nothing to do with the Oracle itself. ps is merely echoing
the command line you entered - if it contains password it is your
problem, not the problem of Oracle or OS. You can avoid this in many
different ways. Here are some:

- Use exp/imp with parameter file (see Oracle Server Utility manual)
and include username/password in the parameter file.
- In command line don't specify the password - the exp/imp will prompt
you for it (you can even leave the username out - in this case it will
prompt you for both username and password). You can still include all
the other needed parameters in the command line.
- Use the "here documents" redirection (see your unix documentation)
- ....
