Paula,

There is alot more to "encryption" than just applying a key to a packet's 
payload to create cyphertext. Rather than have this get ugly, I'd suggest 
that you actually read up on this.

http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/network.101/b10772/toc.htm

There are concepts such as "authentication", "user rights", "data 
integrity", "key management" that need to be addressed as well as 
interoperability with vendors offerings.

I'm sure that an auditor would have a field day with a roll-your-own 
solution if the security of the data was truly important. I've worked around 
this in the past with a cross-over cable between app server and database 
server (network not reachable except via either host) and by putting the 
web/app/database server software on the same host and running everything on 
lo - neither of which scale particularly well.

hth.

Paul
