from dist/idl/ nsISecretDecoderRing.idl:
/* Encrypt nul-terminated string to BASE64 output */
string encryptString(in string text);
/* Decrypt BASE64 input to nul-terminated string output */
/* There is no check for embedded nul values in the decrypted output */
string decryptString(in string crypt);
according to PK11SDR_Encrypt
* Encrypt a block of data using the symmetric key identified. The result
* is an ASN.1 (DER) encoded block of keyid, params and data.
the key appears to be the master password, which can be unset. Use at
your own risk, etc.
