Congratulations on this first step!  I look forward to building your

Granted that I haven't looked at the specs in over a year, but the only
encryption I'm aware of was SSL which is just transport encryption.  It's
up to the client to encrypt for storage.

I'll run some of the statements from my bank (Affinity FCU) thru.  I'm not
sure how well they'll work since it's OFXv1.02.  IIRC 1.02 is a subset of
the later specs.  The only potential gotcha is that it is SGML as opposed
to XML.  We'll find out.

Perhaps a quick survey what version other peoples' banks use would be
