+== AES_ENCRYPT Function
+ 
+The AES_ENCRYPT function encrypts a `_string_` using a specified encryption `_key_` with
the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithm and returns a binary string. 
+
+This function prevents sensitive data from being visible to the public. For example, use
the AES_ENCRYPT function to encrypt person identity number to preserve user confidentiality.
+
+`AES_ENCRYPT (_string_, _key_)`

+=== Syntax Description of AES_ENCRYPT
+
+* `_string_` 
++
+is the data to be encrypted. 
+
+* `_key_` 
++
+is the encryption key to encrypt the `_string_`.
+
++
+TIP: The CQD `block_encryption_mode` controls the mode for the block-based encryption algorithm.
The default mode is the aes-128-ecb, which means the encryption using a key length of 128
bits and the ECB mode.
 
 Review comment:
   Style question: Do we usually capitalize CQD names? Should this be CQD BLOCK_ENCRYPTION_MODE?
