Hi, I have tested in the past with encrypting passwords and other data and decrypting them in a script and found that I can only decrypt at the same computer AND under the same user account. Maybe it's domain specific but I think it is an important point because not everyone can decrypt the data. Only that one who has access to the computer and have the original account and password can decrypt.
