A UNIQUE TRIGGER ON TWO COLUMNS - ORACLE PL/SQL PROGRAMMING

Good evening!
In a table called NEREPSTA_CONFIG, I have a column called REPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD (type VARCHAR2), on which I've built the following trigger:
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER MASTER.REPSTA_SOURCE
BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE
OF REPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD
ON MASTER.NEREPSTA_CONFIG
REFERENCING NEW AS NEW OLD AS OLD
FOR EACH ROW
BEGIN
   :NEW.repsta_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.repsta_sftp_password);
END;
/

So, when a new record is inserted, on commit the NEREPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD column is encrypted with che "CRIPTA" function.  Moreover, when the field NEREPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD is updated, on commit it's encrypted with the same "CRIPTA" function.
Now please suppose to ALTER the NEREPSTA_CONFIG table, adding a new column called NGNEER_SFTP_PASSWORD: I would like to modify the trigger in order to use the CRIPTA stored function ONLY on the field updated or inserted, not on both fields inconditionally: only the modified field has to be cripted with the CRIPTA function.  Of course, if you INSERT a NEW record, both the fields NEREPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD and NGNEER_SFTP_PASSWORD has to be crypted.

Any clues??

Try this:

CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER MASTER.REPSTA_SOURCE
BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE
OF REPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD, NGNEER_SFTP_PASSWORD
ON MASTER.NEREPSTA_CONFIG
REFERENCING NEW AS NEW OLD AS OLD
FOR EACH ROW
BEGIN
  IF INSERTING THEN
   :NEW.repsta_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.repsta_sftp_password);
   :NEW.ngneer_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.ngneer_sftp_password);
  ELSE
    IF UPDATING('REPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD') THEN
     :NEW.repsta_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.repsta_sftp_password);
    ELSE
      IF UPDATING('NGNEER_SFTP_PASSWORD ') THEN
       :NEW.ngneer_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.ngneer_sftp_password);
      END IF;
    END IF;
  END IF;
END;
/

      BEGIN
         :NEW.repsta_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.repsta_sftp_password);
         :NEW.ngneer_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.ngneer_sftp_password);
      END;
   END IF;
 
   IF UPDATING ('REPSTA_SFTP_PASSWORD')
   THEN
      :NEW.repsta_sftp_password := cripta (:NEW.repsta_sftp_password);
