If I understand what you are saying...I would use mcrypt and encrypt the
stored info, keeping the KEY and IV in a separate location for when you need
it. Chances that anybody will break the triple des encryption without the
KEY and IV are slim to none. That way, you don't have to freak out about
moving the information around, that is, until it has been decrypted.
In order to convert the KEY and IV into a normal string, you need to use
some base64 conversion function, I don't remember where I got that or if it
was built into PHP when I did it, but I was able to get it to work pretty
quickly. PHPs hooks into the mcrypt libraries are the best. So easy to
use(and high quality) compared to anything else I've seen.
Hope that helps,
