Have you considered alternative solutions? I mean you asked us how to do this particular solution for whatever problem you are trying to solve, you did not explain the problem. In most cases there is more than one way to solve a problem. Perhaps there is a way that would not require users having private keys.



I am not sure of alternative solutions. The articles I have read have all pretty much agreed that the RSA and DES encryption are how digital signatures are done. I am able to generate a key on a button click event, so I wonder if I couldn't do that when the user submits the form and do this symmetrically so user/admin have the same key. Then store it in a table to query if the data needs to be unencrypted at a later time. But then again the user could be anyone and not the one it was intended for.
What if I generated the key and then passed it through the URL query string in order to verify that it is the user submitting the form? And then store the key in the database to match key and user.

I am thinking outloud here, but maybe the second option would be the better one? I really don't know since I am new to this part of programming. I have done MD5 encrypting so I understand the concept of the encryption. But can't use MD5 because it is one-way encryption.

What do you think?
