p5-Tie-EncryptedHash-1.24p0 – hashes with encrypting fields


Tie::EncryptedHash augments Perl hash semantics to build secure, encrypting
containers of data. Tie::EncryptedHash introduces special hash fields that
are coupled with encrypt/decrypt routines to encrypt assignments at STORE()
and decrypt retrievals at FETCH(). By design, encrypting fields are
associated with keys that begin in single underscore. The remaining
keyspace is used for accessing normal hash fields, which are retained
without modification.

While the password is set, a Tie::EncryptedHash behaves exactly like a
standard Perl hash. This is its transparent mode of access. Encrypting
and normal fields are identical in this mode. When password is deleted,
encrypting fields are accessible only as ciphertext. This is
Tie::EncryptedHash's opaque mode of access, optimized for serialization.

Encryption is done with Crypt::CBC which encrypts in the cipher block
chaining mode with Blowfish, DES.  Tie::EncryptedHash uses Blowfish
by default, but can be instructed to employ any cipher supported by
