Hello there.

I have an application that needs to store a password used to connect to SQL. The problem is that I want to be able to encrypt it and decrypt it.

One of the things I noticed while googling is that when you are going to decypher something you need a key. so basically where can I store this key so I can decypher the encyption.
And which encryption techniques should I use

I know encrypting doesn't solve all problems but hey, at least it will buy me some time.

Re: encrypting and decrypting passwords for application (two-way encryption)


Maybe not on point, but you can take a look at for java anc c# encryption. Full of code that lets you do this to any level of encryption. NSA really hates this site.

kind regards,
