You want to encrypt the Javascript code itself using PHP and then decrypt the code later using PHP again?

Or are you saying you want to use Javascript to encrypt a value and then use PHP to decrypt it?

Any reason you want to use DES specifically?

yes. i want to use Javascript to encrypt a value and then use PHP to decrypt it.

base64 method can be easily decoded. so thats why i am planning to use DES.

Also, you mentioned "private key" - are you talking about using public/private key encryption (asymmetric) or symmetric?

Asymmetric is when you have a public certificate that does the encryption and a private key that does the decryption.

Symmetric is when you encrypt and decrypt data using the same password. DES is a cipher that's used in symmetric cryptography, not in asymmetric (at least not to my knowledge).

For Javascript crypto, I'd suggest this library:
https://code.google.com/p/jscryptolib/

For PHP crypt, use mcrypt:

Base64 is not encryption - that is encoding. There is no security around base64. If you don't have a specific need for DES, I would suggest using AES encryption. It's a more common cipher, so you'll have better luck finding specific examples in the future, and you can start with AES-128 and move up to AES-256 if you want even stronger security.

Sorry, I linked to the wrong Javascript library. I was trying to link to CryptoJS, not JSCrypto:
https://code.google.com/p/crypto-js/#AES

That should show you the code to encrypt the value in AES (you may need to base64-encode the encrypted value afterwards so that it works with other requests).

The decryption routine can be found here:

If you are doing this to prevent eavesdropping, SSL/TLS cert and HTTPS is a better way.  That way, any eavedropper won't even know there is something to be encrypted in your response because it is All encrypted.

Is there a reason for the B grade instead of the A grade? I gave you exactly what you were asking for...
