I used to use openssl aes-256-cbc, but the problem I have with this is when I try to decrypt in a different version of the distro it fails, as if it depends also on some internal key or something, instead of depending solely on the password. So I have to keep a different encrypted file for each version of the distro, which is annoying and bad.

Any suggestions?
