Notes about Google Maps for Business

Generated signature is based on specific URL and private cryptographic key.

In order to use your private key within this module you'll have to save it in module configuration settings, which are stored as plain text in your database. Google's documentation, on the other hand, explicitly states that this private key should not be "stored on any websites".

Use this feature at your own risk and only if you're fully aware of the risks involved!

Code used by this module for generating encoded signatures was adapted from Google's Extended URL signing gallery sample for PHP: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/urlsigning/UrlSigner.php-source.
