    Encrypted would simply require you to issue the decryption of the algorithm given the same keys and all the other fun stuffs with encryption.

    Hashed would be undoable. So it depends on if you've encrypted it or if you hashed it. Since passwords shouldn't ever need viewing (and there is no reason for anyone to be able to view it. Ever.), these are typically hashed and not encrypted.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)
