I was looking at the article posted here regarding encryption/decryption using the RC4 stuff (http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/010100-1.shtml). What I'm trying to do is store an encrypted password in my database. I then need to decrypt it so I can use it to log into an Oracle database. The examples in the article are combined into a single operation. Encrypt the password and then decrypt it. I can't figure out how to separate the operations. I know it must be very simple but I can't find it. Can anyone help? All I need to do is decrypt the already encrypted string.
