HP specifically states in the help documentation for the Password Encoder Tool and the Crypt.Encrypt method that they are ***NOT*** meant to be secure. And this is why:

The method .SetSecure decrypts passwords that have been encrypted using the Password Encoder Tool or Crypt.Encrypt. This enables a user to use .SetSecure to put the encrypted password into a text box and then retrieve the decrypted value using .GetROProperty. See the code below for an example of this.

This is a potentially dangerous thing to do as it exposes your passwords in plain text. Use this at your own risk!

![alt text][1]

Dim myPassword , encryptedPassword, decryptedPassword
myPassword = ''thisIsASecretPassword''
encryptedPassword = Crypt.Encrypt(myPassword)
Msgbox encryptedPassword,,''Encrypted''
decryptedPassword = Decrypter(encryptedPassword)
Msgbox decryptedPassword, ,''Decrypted''

Public Function Decrypter(encryptedPassword)
'Launching IE in mode 7. Mode = 7 displays as a minimized window.

SystemUtil.Run ''C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe'', '''', '''', '''', 7
'Or if using a 64 bit OS:
'SystemUtil.Run ''C:Program Files (86)Internet Exploreriexplore.exe'', '''', '''', '''', 7

If Browser(''micclass:=Browser'', ''index:=0'').WinEdit(''micclass:=WinEdit'', ''index:=0'').Exist Then
Browser(''micclass:=Browser'', ''index:=0'').WinEdit(''micclass:=WinEdit'', ''index:=0'').SetSecure encryptedPassword
DecryptedPW = Browser(''micclass:=Browser'', ''index:=0'').WinEdit(''micclass:=WinEdit'', ''index:=0'').GetROProperty(''text'')
Decrypter = DecryptedPW
End If

SystemUtil.CloseProcessByName ''iexplore.exe''
End Function
