How do I encrypt a query string?

saturation asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I need to encrypt a querystring in an ASP page so that my user, for example, does not see what variables are being passed from page to page.  I am unable, unfortunately, to use hidden fields to pass them, so I need to figure out another way.  Either an encryption method would be nice, or another way to fake the URL by placing another URL in the querystring while the actual querystring is hidden from the user's view.   Ideas?
