secure ruby, rails programming

[This is a cross-post, was told I would have better luck here than on
ruby-talk]

Hello Community,

I am just learning Ruby and Rails and would like to know what good
security ruby gems are out there that will help me keep data sent over
the wire secure or stored on a server secure vs plain old text.

Does rails provide this through it's framework?
What are some good encryption gems to use?

With respect to security and Ruby, what are good books or online sites
that you Ruby Veteran use.

Kind Regards,
Rajinder Yadav

Hi Rajinder,

I don't know if there are any gems or plugins, but I have found this
link yesterday here: http://www.rorsecurity.info/. There is a book you
can download in pdf version or purchase the print version.

All the best,

Fidel.

Hi Fidel, thanks for the link, it should help me get up to speed on
security issues along with my Rails learning.
