WebKit plugin - storing passwords



Hi

I want to store a username and password on disk for the user so that
they don't have to enter it every time to get access to my site. For
obvious reasons I don't want to store a cleartext password and so want
to perform some form of encryption. I've been looking at the Apple Mac
keychain approach but don't want the user to get prompted to allow the
plugin to have access to a keychain. Is it possible to store a username
/ password in a keychain and retrieve it without ever having the user
grant permission?

Alternatively, I am happy to just do my own encryption and am looking
for an easy way to encrypt an NSString object before writing it to file.
Do any convenient methods for this exist?

Thanks
Geoff
