There's a fairly standard UDF for encrypting - F_IBPASSWORD.
There are also some good IBO components to manage users and passwords
comprehensively. Users can manage themselves.
There are also some good security table hacks around to allow users to
change their own passwords.
I've never had an need to decrypt but the encrypt method is basic.
