Password storage.

March 16th, 2013 by Stephen Jones Leave a reply »

This week Troy Hunt wrote a piece where he called for disclosure by websites (and really all applications) of the password storage mechanism.His explanation of what this might change in terms of Internet security is great, and while this might not actually make applications more secure, I’m not sure that many companies would want to be forced to disclose they are storing passwords in plain text. Consumers are becoming more savvy and realize this is a poor way of managing systems and will quickly learn what are strong and no-so-strong algorithms.
