Can crypt() be used to store the passwords?

edited May 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, i would like to store the passwords encrypted with crypt() like unix passowords. I just changed the files library/People/People.Class.Authenticator and People.Class.UserManager but i think this is not the way to go. I want to sync the vanilla users with unix users and i think md5 is not very secure. Maybe you can help me and tell me how i can have this feature even after an update :) greetz elm


  • you can create your new classes, add them via an extension and set a reference via the object factory so core classes will be (functionally, not literally) overridden even after update
