Ruby is getting that or at least something that good for encryption,
isn't it?
crypt is pretty much useless for any responsible attempts at security.

Hello Xeno,

encryption/decryption tools are available as external libraries (like in
any
other good programming language).
A quick search with http://www.google.com/search?q=encryption+ruby
reveals a
lot of possible solutions.

Regards,
Nicolai

There is a comprehensive binding to openssl in the standard library.
Documentation isn't brilliant but you can google for examples.

Alternatively, if you just need to encrypt and decrypt files, then you
could look at ruby-gpgme
