I have been mulling over this issue for some time and the potential ways to solve it. Unfortunately with this particular issue I can't seem to really figure out the 'best' method even after researching a bit, and none of my friends know either.
Time to ask for help!
Basically, I have a company I'm setting up which will have a html form to collect information for myself or another one of my admins to retrieve at a later date.
Originally this included billing information/CC, however..
a) I didn't want the responsibility this carries
b) I changed my business model a bit so I don't CC info anymore
What I do need though, on this form, will include their username/password to 2 or 3 different sites (I provide support). This will allow me to login and fix their problems.
Basically, I bought an SSL so that when they put in their username/passwords for that particular site(or sites) into my form, it's encrypted, but im not quite sure what to do AFTER this.
I ideally want to send it right to a database in an encrypted format (do I use SSL for this?), and then build some sort of very simple CMS or basic script to unencrypt and then retrieve that information. In the cms i need only the most basic funtions.. view all entries/delete entry/ sort by date/group into pages in case i get 1000's of entries down the line.
I'm assuming there are solutions out there that do this already that are pre-packaged and free or open source.
If anyone could direct me to a solid very secure and one I would really appreciate it, or guide me in a direction which is better.
