[ASK] How to safely include password in the source code

Recommended Posts

michaelslamet

Dear fellow members,

I need to access to my website's database, therefore I need to supply a password.

I have no idea how to pass the password without being declare it in the source code, but what if somebody get the application and able to decompile it?

Is there any safe way to do this?

Thanks :)

No. You can't store anything securely in a compiled AutoIt script.

Even if there would be no obvious way to "decompile", you shouldn't put password inside your script. Better solution is to use password hash and calculate hash of the input comparing them then.
