autoit md5

5 posts in this topic

hello.

i am working on autoit to communicate with mysql.

but i dont wanne send usernames and password etc over internet as plain text.

i have done some reading about md5

and i found 4 topics in the helpfile of autoit

_Crypt_Startup

_Crypt_Shutdown

_Crypt_HashFile

_Crypt_HashData

and i found:

_StringEncrypt

_Crypt_DecryptData

_Crypt_DecryptFile

_Crypt_EncryptData

i'm new to md5 and to encryption.

i want my data to be send secure.

can somebody give me some advice about what md5 is.

what is the best way to encrypyt my data?

First things first. Read up on the difference between encryption and hashing. MD5 is a hash algorithm (think of checksum rather than encoding), not and encryption algorithm.

Take a look at the examples in the UDF help-file for _Crypt_EncryptFile() & _Crypt_DecryptFile(). $CALG_AES_256 is a good algorithm to use for encryption, but remember, this is only 'save' as long as you don't embed the password into the script itself.
