Encrypt Overview

The Encrypt service is useful to encrypting data such as passwords and query strings so they are not intercepted even when they are visible to the user. The encrypt service takes the text to encrypt and the encryption key with which to encrypt. It uses symmetric encryption which is designed to allow anyone with access to the encryption key to decrypt and obtain the original input value. Since the users do not have the encryption key used to encrypt the text, it remains hidden.
