I'm not quite sure if I still understand your problem well enough.

Anyway, see if this helps:

Lastly, I recommend Hashing for passwords used in internet applications!

Let me know if it helps or if you need more related info! Good Luck!

ciao!!!

Yes erik has understandood my request. I want to encrypt this clear-text
