Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: example: using openssl to encrypt/decrypt cc information

Hey Jerry,

Did you manage to make ns_encrypt work fine? I can't seem to get it to encrypt/decrypt text larger than the key (which is the RSA limitation) but even using blowfish:

set ciphertext [ns_encrypt -blowfish -keysize 448 -public $original_text]
kills my AOLServer when sending a larger text (just a few hundred characters) with:
alloc: invalid block: 0x2a18c00: ef ef 0

Abort trap
Any luck with this? Or you ended up using OpenSSL?

Thanks in advance.
