At present, my passwords are stored in my database in plain text.

There is a webpage on my intranet that runs a SQL query to display the usernames and password in a table. The usernames and password are entered into the database through the submission of a form.  This is the only things that hat are does with the passwords, i  mean i do not use them to authenticate users etc.

I am wondering is there a way I can encrypt them so that you cannot just run a quesry and get them .... and then a way to decrypts them to display them in the page on the intranet.

How to do this or a good tutorial about it would be great, thanks
