View Full Version : Password hash advice

Should i hash my passwords with MD5 or sha1?
It should be the safest hash.(and not the fastest)
Should i also add "salt" to it?

Hash with sha1() and add salt. Though there is not much difference between a salted MD5 and a SHA1 hash.

I have to agree, prepend or append (or both, though one should be sufficient) a salt and sha1().
