That will work -- something like:

aaa authentication login async line none

line 33 64
 login authentication async
 !optional: password <line-specific password>

This will allow attachment without a password, or if you define a 
password on the line, it will use that. However, you then will want to 
be very sure to have a safe access-class defined for those lines; I 
usually restrict either to the console loopback itself, or possibly that 
and a trusted local ops subnet.
