First of all, thank you for this component!

I found a tutorial in OutSystems documentation regarding best practices on how to encrypt sensitive data before saving it into the database. They are using CryptoAPI component, however, they are making use of the Wrap_Key function, which is not available in the component at the moment. Please refer to the image below:

At the same time, looking at the demo component for the CryptoAPI component, I can see that the approach is quite different:

My question is, is OutSystems documentation outdated? Does your new approach offer the same level of security?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
