I have a table that stores usernames and passwords and I want to encrypt the
passwords before they are stored in the database.  Will postgresql do this
for me, or do I have to do the encryption on the client side?  Could you
please point me to some instructions on how to accomplish this.
 
Thanks for your help,
 
kevin
