Common string encryption

Is there a string encryption mechanism available in kdelibs. I want
to store a password in a config file (upon request from the user, like
in kmail), but I want to avoid to store it in clear form. A basic
encryption would increase security a little bit. If if doesn't exist,
this could be an addition to KStringHandler class. What do you think?
