       msg The String to encode


       Encode  a  String using the AES256 algorithm.  The value is encoded with the application's
       secret   key,   which   is   compiled   in   automatically   (unless    overridden    with
       Crypto.setEncryptionKey  (3kaya) ). The return value is base64 encoded and also includes a
       hash which will be verified when the String is decoded. The value will only  be  decodable
       by  the  Kaya application that encoded it, provided that the application secret key is not

       You must therefore ensure no-one has read access to the application key (whether  this  is
       in the Kaya binary or an external source) if you need to rely on the integrity of the data
       (for example, in CGI or webapps). Should you suspect  the  key  is  compromised,  you  can
       change an internal key by recompiling the binary, or using the kaya-rekey utility.
