encryption/decryption issues with security assist

I created some simple registration pages with security assist, but for some reason the different fields in my user update form are not being decrypted correctly. It's different fields each time, and doesn't really make much sense from what I can see.

Looks like a problem with t he lent of the RIJNDAEL encrypted strings.

for the RIJNDAEL columns, try expanding the from archer(50) to something quite a bit larger, like archer(2000)

That seems to have fixed it. Thanks!

Where can I find the necessary column size for each type of encryption Security Assist offers?

How can I convert my existing database data to encrypted format for existing users?

You would need to look at the documentation for each of the encryption types in the PHP site.

RIJNDAEL is a little different than the others though though in that there is not a static string length. encrypting the same value different times will give a different encryption string and each will have a different length, so theres not really a way to know what the string length will be, and I haven't found any mention of max length.

theres not an easy way to encrypt existing data without reentering it.
