Subject Password encryption
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2000 12:04:15 GMT
Slightly off subject...

I'm storing passwords for the site in my db.

I'd like to encrypt them before writing to the db and after reading, so 
they're not stored on disk in plain text.

Can anyone recommend a simple java one-hit encryption method that will 
protect them from casual pinching?  Something like unix crypt, I guess.

I don't want/haven't the spare processing power to learn up on the javax 
ssl package, as if anybody malicious is in my database it's not really 
going to help much anyway...
