Can Universe use Encrypted Data and Decrypt

We have a requirement where the data is encrypted, but the Webi reports need to show the results in the decrypted format. Is this possible and how would this be done. I am not familiar with the encryption/decryption process and don't know all the touchpoints and questions to ask.

Using XIR3.1SP2

    I have written an application to encrypt and decrypt data many years ago. It involves some algorithm and it has to be done programmatically. In another word, the Universe is not going to decrypt data for you automatically. You will have to either embed custom code in the WebI report to decrypt data at runtime, or you can write a decrypting application to load the data into a table, then have your Universe and WebI report pointing to that table.

    Hope this helps.
