DES_DECRYPT(string, [key])
This function decrypts text that was encrypted using the triple Data Encryption Standard
(DES) algorithm with a 128-bit key length, reversing the DES_ENCRYPT( ) function. It returns
NULL if an error occurs. The function will work only if MySQL has been configured
for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support. It is available as of version 4.0.1 of MySQL. Here
is an example:
SELECT DES_DECRYPT(loan_security_number, 0)
FROM orders
WHERE order_no = ‘1223’;
the value for the loan_security_number column is decrypted using the first key
string in the key file.
