Genesis username and password are encrypted and saved as RDS in the package config directory.

A random string is generated and stored in the session environment variable RESTATIS_KEY. This string is used as the key to encrypt and decrypt the entered Genesis credentials.

To avoid having to save authentication in future sessions, RESTATIS_KEY can be added to .Renviron. The usethis package includes a helper function for editing .Renviron files from an R session with usethis::edit_r_environ().
