Data Encryption

Hi All,


Is it possible to send the data (e.g. Accounts) to an external web service(written in java) in encrypted format and then decrypt the same in the external web service?




Sending the data over SSL isn't good enough?  That's what I'd recommend.


Salesforce is already encrypted communications-wise using TLS and/or SSL (depending on the recipient), but you could add a layer of encryption by Crypto methods (see this link: www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_classes_restful_crypto.htm). You'll need to implement the same decrypter on the far end, using the same cypher and key.
