Function generateSimplePasswordHash

Generates a password hash using MD5 together with a 32-bit salt.

Prototype

deprecated string generateSimplePasswordHash(
  string password,
  string additional_salt = null
);

Parameters

NameDescription
password The password for which a one-way hash is to be computed
additional_salt An optional string that is used to compute the final hash. The same string must be given to testSimplePassword to verify a password later. If this string is kept secret, it can enhance the security of this function.

Returns

A base64 encoded string containing the salt and the hash value is returned.

Remarks

MD5 is not considered safe and is computationally cheap. Although the use of salt helps a bit, using this function is discouraged for systems where security matters.
