    CFMX_COMPAT encryption algorithm?

    cwilbur@workshoplive
      All,

      I am working on some backend software in Perl that needs to read and write to a database that some ColdFusion applications write to. One of the things that the initial developers did far too often was apply encrypt() -- and this was before MX allowed for multiple encryption algorithms. (We can't upgrade ColdFusion due to dependencies in the software, or we could do that and use a standard encryption algorithm.)

      So I'm looking for either an explanation of the algorithm that CFMX_COMPAT encryption uses, or (better yet!) some Perl code to encrypt and decrypt it. Any pointers are appreciated; googling has not gotten me anywhere.

      Thanks,
      Charlton
