Does anybody know of an existing C extension that interfaces with ruby code for the sole purpose of hiding important encryption info, such as the SALT? When users write encrypt/decrypt methods it would be nice to call a C interface to obtain the salt/iv. This way general users would have a harder chance of cracking the encryption. Using this method wouldn't about the only way to obtain the sensitive data by reading each RAM address and try to grab the value while that Ruby method executes while it's calling the C extension.
If one doesn't exists is this something other users would take advantage of if one was written?
Look forward to all the suggestions!
