Can't you pass the entire string to AES_ENCRYPT() to get the desired effect?

AES_ENCRYPT() and AES_DECRYPT() are handy for doing a reversible encryption of data to be stored in a MySQL table. However, it has two security flaws:
* The passphrase must be stored somewhere and used in the calling code. Securing this is critical.
* Plaintext will be flowing between the server and the client, since the encryption and decryption is done in the server.
