re: HMAC Authentication: Better protection for your API VIEW POST

Umm.. please don't store passwords on the server. You'd need to devise a way of storing something irreversibly derived from the true password that the client also does to the password and uses that as the hmac key.

 

Absolutely not. This is for demonstration purposes only. Passwords must be encrypted before any persistence happens. I typically use PBKDF2.
