Abstract:
ABSTRACT Recently, in most organizations, there have been a number of high profile security breaches and prominent among this is the theft of database of users’ passwords. This has become an area of interest for crackers whose interest has shifted to popular websites. Unfortunately, many consumer database available online, store their passwords either as plain text or in an encrypted form to which crackers have found ways around due to the proliferation of passwords decrypters online. In this paper, we focus on database passwords security, using a strong hashing algorithm and salting. This provides a platform to eliminate the need to ever persist user password in plain text or easy to know any users’ password. This system is implemented using the message digest 5 (MD5) algorithms for hashing and a salt pattern with the dot Net (.NET)framework using C#.Net 2010 and the Microsoft SQL Server 2008. Keywords:- hashing, salting, crackers, decrypters
