re: How to Securely Store a Password in Java VIEW POST


While this is a well written guide, it should be pointed out that hashing != encryption. Hashing is 1-way, encryption is 2-way. In other words, you can't decrypt a hash, you can only check that rehashing the same value gives the same results.


Thanks for the heads-up! I'm working on an amended version of the article that discusses this issue. I'll post it tonight or tomorrow.


Updated. Let me know what you think!
