Synopsis

                   Encrypt(string, key)

Encrypts string using the specified key. Encrypt( ) uses the value of key as a seed to generate a random 32-bit key for use in an XOR-based encryption algorithm. The resulting string is then uuencoded and may be as much as three times the size of the original string. The following example takes a string and encrypts it:

<cfset MyString = "This is the secret message.">
<cfset MyKey = "1a2">
<cfset EncryptedString = Encrypt(MyString, MyKey)>
<cfset DecryptedString = Decrypt(EncryptedString, MyKey)>
   
<cfoutput>
<b>Original String:</b> #MyString#<br>
<b>Key:</b> #MyKey#
<p><b>Encrypted String:</b> #EncryptedString#<br> 
<b>Decrypted String:</b> #DecryptedString#
</cfoutput>
