Absolutely. Home-brewed solutions tend to end up like CipherTextI
. In the past, I've used a fairly simple system that I described in a previous thread, Administration Ignorance
. In that example, I use Crypt::RC4
, though there are any number of other quality encryption modules that you could use in its place. In addition to Crypt::RC4
and the two modules mentioned by moodster
, I'd also suggest Crypt::Rijndael
. All of these modules are easy to use and relatively fast.
