    Default Encryption and Cookies

    Hi,<BR>One of my clients uses cookies to automatically log on to an Extranet. The thing is that cookies are in plain(clear) text so any person with access to the clients harddrive can find out the username and password. <BR>Now I&#039;m wondering, is there a way to encrypt the information in the cookie and decrypt serverside?<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>Patrik Andersson

    Well you could just write a GUID to the cookie and store the actual username/password in your database for the web site.
