Unfortunately, the call center is a different organization and they have their own systems. We won't be able to provide them a client/server setup (yet - maybe in the future, but that's a ways down the road).

The tentative plan is to provide them with a script that they can run against the source file to encrypt it and then we process it on our side. That's why I'm hoping for the lightest-weight approach. I'm also puzzling around with some simple reversible ciphers that can be used to do the encoding.

    I sympathize with your problem, to wit, getting a data feed from a third party over which you have little or no control.

    "The tentative plan is to provide them with a script that they can run against the source file to encrypt it and then we process it on our side."

    You'd be asking for trouble if your script presumed any particular version of Perl or the presence of any non-standard (i.e., don't come with Perl) modules. You'll probably have enough trouble just getting them to run a script at all.

    Good Luck!

    Update: Oops! Forgot to mention, if you're planning to use crypt, you should be on the lookout for architecture- or OS-dependencies in its output.
