Membership / Role provider with encrypted database connection strings

Hi Experts

 I'm using CipherLite.NET to encrypt my database strings, and it works well in my stored procs. The trouble is the Membership and Roles providers don't like the encrypted stings (Obviously) is there a way to pass the code that decrypts into these providers. (I have a class where I pass the key and it returns the decrypted string)

 I have used CipherLite.NET because the site gets deployed to multiple clubs and I found that using the built in encryption requires the machine key so I cant pre encrypt before I deploy. Unless there is a way to use the built in encryption using my own key.
