Overview

The acts_as_authentic method has a crypto_provider option. This allows you to use any type of encryption you like. Just create a class with a class level encrypt and matches? method. See example below.

Example

class MyAwesomeEncryptionMethod
  def self.encrypt(*tokens)
    # the tokens passed will be an array of objects, what type of object is irrelevant,
    # just do what you need to do with them and return a single encrypted string.
    # for example, you will most likely join all of the objects into a single string and then encrypt that string
  end

  def self.matches?(crypted, *tokens)
    # return true if the crypted string matches the tokens.
    # depending on your algorithm you might decrypt the string then compare it to the token, or you might
    # encrypt the tokens and make sure it matches the crypted string, its up to you
  end
end
