Can Adobe Launch take a value from the query string, encrypt or obfuscate that value and push the encrypted/obfuscated value to Adobe Analytics?

If so, how?

How would be decrypt/un-obfuscate those values stored in Adobe Analytics?

Thanks

Not sure exactly of the specifics that you mean by running it locally, but according to their documentation it is using a 64 character SHA-265 hash (https://www.searchdiscovery.com/blog/sdi-toolkit-extension-for-launch-by-adobe/ ) which can be implemented in almost any language of your preference and even some in Excel VB Script if search for it.   Haven't tried any of these but there are a number of free ones out there (ex: GitHub - Caligatio/jsSHA: A JavaScript implementation of the complete Secure Hash Standard family (S...  Some perform better than others:  test ) or some lanaguage have them built in like PHP: hash - Manual.  The algorythm is the same so as long as it's implmented correctly, white space is trimmed, etc. the IDs should hash to the same value as the one you implment through the Launch extension.
