For a school project I needed to do the same thing. I stored the passwords
in a XML file after encrypting them. I based myself on the following
tutorial: http://www.obviex.com/samples/Encryption.aspx
Of course, someone who knows the cypherkey you used can decrypt the data
again for evil use, but I think you may assume that the user (if you store
the password in a file in the user's home dir) knows his password.
