Secure Passwords (Not Plaintext)
« on: January 20, 2004, 05:22:25 pm »

This would seem to be a very important security concern - storing passwords in plaintext is not a very good idea.

If you could implement something like MD5 pass encryption I'm sure many people would appreciate it.

I could probably stick this in the code myself but I don't want to go altering the code as it might give me more problems down the line with upgrading and patching.

Thanks :)

from time to time the mySQL-server of our host sourceforge.net experiences downs: just try accessing it agin (hit refresh in your browser if you get the error your mentioned).

I got this when trying to access the link

 The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.

Of limits?

Not only would I like to store them securely but I would also like to have an SSL login (i have an ssl cert) 

anyidea?

Thanks
