Hi Everybody, I have a problem here. I need to encrypt my passwords in the database. I dont want to use the powerful java Cryptography API which requires the download of JCE . I want the encryption to be simple. How can i do it?? Regards saj
You can Hash it and store the hash, you can checksum it and store the checksum, you can alternately shift each chacter a set number of bits a different way, you can develop your own letter substitution matrix like the old decoder rings. or you can mask the string with a key. You could use UUEncode or Base64Encode. Any of these ways will work.
