( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks for the reply. The key is being returned from the database correctly, so I'm not sure if storing it as a BLOB or converting it will help. And I'm using AES_ENCRYPT in MySQL, so the key is being stored securely. But if I pass the string directly to the decryption function like I show in the example, it gives me this error:
Can't call method "check" without a package or object reference at /us +r/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.2/Crypt/ line 133.
My guess is that it needs to be stored in a hash (which I've tried) or I'm just missing something. If I can't get this to work I'll just go ahead and encrypt it like you suggested but I would prefer to store it in the database. Any suggestions?

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
