encrypt field contents using public and private key

Question asked by jonni on Jun 7, 2016

Any ideas around encrypting the contents of a field using either a custom function or a plug-in but not include the password or key that both encodes and decodes in the solutions scripts?


I am thinking along the lines of using one password to encrypt, which could reside within the solutions scripts. But use an external key or password to decode the contents of the field. Much like you have a public and private key in platforms like, say, pgp.


I've had a look at some of the regular plug-ins like base elements and 360 works for general field contents encryption and as far as I have found they all rely on the key or secret to reside in the script that encodes the field contents.


I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas.
