Starting in PHP 5.5, the PHP developers have planned to add a few new functions …to make password hashing easier. Now, as I'm recording this, version 5.4 …is out. But 5.5 isn't too far off. …So you may actually be using that, or something even later, by the time you're …watching this. Now, it's common knowledge that you …should be hashing passwords using secure algorithms like Blowfish. …But a surprising number of developers are using less secure algorithms, like MD5 or …SHA-1, for their hashing. One of the reasons for this is that as …you probably saw, using the crypt function can be a little bit difficult to …use, and it's easy to make mistakes. It's much easier for someone just to call …the function MD5 on a plain text password and be done with it, and skip learning …about salting and hashing costs, and everything else that we've been talking about.…
The PHP developers are hoping that by making process easier, it will cause more …developers to adopt best practices in their password systems. …
