Is there any plans for MS to make the CryptoAPI scriptable so it can be used
directly in ASP? I mean there are times when I want a one way hash or
private key encryption to keep data secure and since the CryptoAPI is
considered secure (i.e. uses good algorithms and its implementation has been
tested) that would be much better then trying to implement it myself
(finding the code implement the algorithm, not to mention speed of the code)
or trusting some other third party component, especially since you don't
know what algorithm they are using.

Plus there would be the added benefit of being able to use it client side
using a MS supplied ActiveX control thats already there instead of forcing a
download. Of course thats still not that good in terms of cross platform
support.
