@Francisco3945 - Don't use MD5.

It is unsafe and has been for over 15 years (despite what the CCS Manual says).

If you want a quick method of increasing the password encryption without adding extra libraries (like phpass and bcrypt) I suggest using the CCS Password feature and using a different encryption algorithm.

In the project settings under Security > Advanced Security > tick Encrypt Database using > tick Code Expression and put in something like this:
but CHANGE the string "d4DF44%$" to any other random string of 4-8 alphanumeric characters.

This will encrypt all the passwords in your database (oh and change the length of the password field to varchar(64) at least) in a similar (but unique to your project) encryption. Don't use MD5.

Pros: It is quick and built in, and can be understood fairly quickly, and you change the 'random string' for each project. No installation of external libraries.

Cons: not 'best practice' and not unique encryption for each person.

If you do 1 little thing to make your passwords more secure, try that. Also check out 'whirlpool' and other encryption functions build into PHP. Don't use MD5.



Don't use MD5. ;-)
