in reply to web cgi forms data security...

If you have a backend DB and the webserver(s) all have access to it, consider doing something with sessions where you hand the user a completely opaque session key and store all the data locally, temporarily.

Or at best, use one of the Crypt modules to stuff it into a cookie (temporary, don't make them store it) and deal with it using the cookie mechanism.

[AnomalousMonk]: LanX: I should have written "vessel". Rama was (is? - I'm still hoping) no asteroid.
[erix]: itym vehicle (vessel is for water-vehicles)
[erix]: then again you may be a native speaker and I'd do better to shut up :)
[AnomalousMonk]: erix: s/vessel/vehicle/
