does anyone know anything about AP's claim that Google
"encrypts" credit-card numbers?  specifically, which
cipher and what kind of key management do they use?

  "The new software out Thursday for the [Google] toolbar
   includes ... a program that automatically fills out
   Internet forms seeking a customer's name and address.

  "The function that fills in forms offers an option to
   store credit card numbers too, but the information
   is encrypted on the hard drive of a user's computer
   instead of Google's computers, for security and
   privacy reasons."
