XOR may be just what you need.  It won't be easy for someone to type xor'd strings into the console on the fly.  Certainly it is still spoofable, but not in a convenient way.

Though, someone else could easily write an addon that could crypt/decrypt messages to the channel.

Note, I don't believe there is a way to really "hide" a channel in Wow.  It's basically an IRC type server on the backend.

Just curious, as a wow player myself, what kind of add on your working on?

Happy Hunting!
