I've noticed that when I encrypt something using Crypt::CBC in the resulting string are always the same over multiple executions (using the same passphrase). The remainder of the string is always random. What is going on here? :)
#!/usr/bin/perl use Crypt::CBC; my $cipher = Crypt::CBC->new( -key => 'my secret key blah blah', -cipher => 'Blowfish', ); my $ciphertext = $cipher->encrypt_hex("This data is hush hush blah bla +h"); my $plaintext = $cipher->decrypt_hex($ciphertext); print "$ciphertext\n$plaintext\n";
