#crypt secure or not?





cr3ativ3
i was reading up on some php login protection stuff like that.

I came by the #crypt function it says it can't be decrypted unlike the #encrypt is this true and how high protection is that it doesn't seem like that hard to make a password system with the #crypt. I would have thought making secure login things would use something harder to program then #crypt

It is true. The hashes generated by crypt cannot be decrypted in reasonable amount of time -- for example, if you used brute force on your 3.6 GHz pc, it would take few million years to crack a 8 char length password.

You could also use md5() which is supposed to be better than crypt.

#crypt is what they use on forums write because most forums you can't recover your pass. You have to change it.

Or do they us md5()

Use md5(). It is secure enough for atleast next thousands of years Smile
