Hashing Password

by tekichan In reply to security

Hi Shams,

I bet you were looking for some functions which could hash the password rather than store it in a plain text format.

I know that both Java and PHP have existing functions/classes of MD5 and SHA-1. You can simply convert your secret information with the function and store it.

In addition, you can also use some built-in functions if you are using some database mainly. There is, for example, an MD5 function in MySQL and many people like to use it to store passwords.

Hope they can help.
