Encrypting User/Pass sent by WWW::Mechanizeby cdherold (Monk)
|on Sep 19, 2005 at 06:24 UTC||Need Help??|
cdherold has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am finally getting a handle on WWW::Mechanize.
Now I want to go into my brokerage account and do some screen scraping.
But before I start testing my ability to get into my account by sending my USER/PASS out over the web using WWW::Mechanize, I thought it might be good to encrypt them.
I know little about encryption, save that it exists and that I should probably most definitely use it in this case.
The code that I am currently using is ...
I am curious what modifications I should make to encrypt these values as they course through the ether.
I ask for the monks' direction in further educating myself in this area ... and at the same time not setting myself up to see my brokerage account looted.
