There is no "usual best practice around crypto" in Squeak or any other
technology.  "Crypto" is just one primitive tool of several needed for
digital security, and depending on what the security requirements

Squeak's Cryptography package works and includes test-cases
demonstrating its various capabilities.

If it is not absolutely crucial to be 100% secure, then using
lower-level may suffice.  IMO, ultimately, the end-to-end argument
cannot be denied, which is why we protect our sensitive bits at the
core (e.g., the domain objects themselves)..
