I need some help from someone that may have traveled this road.

We will be receiving encrypted data from a remote location that we need to decrypt and process.

What I know about the encryption is that it is symmetric, with DES and CBC.

My question is can I use a Perl routine to Decrypt the information?

If so what modules do I need?  

Crypt::DES?  are there others?  

The specs indicate that is it is also Base-64 encoded so that I will  need to decode then decrypt, I think

Is there a CBC module? that I need or does the DES module understand all of that.  

Any help is appreciated.  This sucker is overwhelming me a tad bit.
