    OK, I'm trying to figure out how to encrypt a password on an app I'm working on and I found this...

    Code:
    var key = "sfhjasf7827387af9s7d8f";
    var in_string = "This is a test string.";
    var encrypted_string = Mojo.Model.encrypt( key, in_string );
    var decrypted_string = Mojo.Model.decrypt( key, encrypted_string );
    Ref: Mojo.Model.encrypt(key, data)

    So, I understand how to use this, create a key and encrypt/decrypt a variable. But how secure is this? I mean, if someone wants to steal your password, couldn't they just unpack your IPK, get into the source code, get the key and decrypt it?

    Yes, you are correct. Normally, the "Key" is a password that is entered by the user which is used to encrypt data. In most encryption programs the key isn't stored in the application or database.
