Safely Storing Passwords

  • Stephen Haunts
Chapter

Abstract

Now that we have covered hashing and authenticated hashing, the next place to explore is the protection and storage of passwords. Passwords are still the most common way to authenticate a user, but it is easy to put yourself in a situation where your system is not secure and is susceptible to attacks. In this chapter we will explore various different password storage techniques and discuss their benefits and consequences.
