i cant really advise you on how you would use encryption to do a simliar thing. i know that encryption invloves digital certificates, which i assume need to be purchased ?
The one way digest allows you to store a password in a way that is useless if someone discovers it. Since there is no way to take the message digest and turn it back into its original value, knowing the message digest won't get you into the system.
