use some algorithm for encryption...like RC4 algorithm

You can even create your own encryption/decryption algorithm. Put all the characters which are allowed to be in username & password into array. Pickup some number for example 4 and if you get "a" in username/password replace it with "e" and you have your algorithm. But yes there is plenty algorithm online, but be aware for some of them you have to pay and secondly you need your server admin get add for you. Also you shouold use servlets not only JSP's.

isn't it ceasar cipher :P

if you want to store passwords in db, i suggest you cryptographic hash functions

with hashing even if someone broke into your database they only see hashed-passwords...

many languages have hashing API's you can easily find them in their documentations or in the internet.
