Password Encryptionby Anonymous Monk
|on Aug 20, 2002 at 07:43 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am looking for a simple way to encrypt/decrypt passwords which are stored in a properties file.
For example, root passwords to unix machines.
I have tried looking at the Crypt packages, but the ciphertext contains unicode characters which
give problems when reading back from a file.
Heavyweight encryption is not really needed.
