Alright, I am trying to use the RC4 encryption method stated in happygv's post. I'm triple encrypting the data with 3 different keys/passwords and this seems to work for some data but not for others.
I'm trying to use it to encrypt data that is going into a database and for some reason some of the encrypted values break my insert queries. I thought maybe it was the triple encryption so I switched to a single encryption and it fixed that particular value but the same problem is affecting other values.
So my question is how can I fix this and what is causing it? Illegal characters being created with the encryption? Is the password/key that you specify when performing the encryption limited to certain characters (i.e. is the key I'm using causing the problem)?
