If you want to encrypt/decrypt something specific to a user why don't you
prompt the user to enter a key, and then use they supplied key to
encrypt/decrypt. This will function somewhat like a password - if the user
doesn't supply the same key that was used to encrypt the data, the decrypt
will not work.
