Saving Passwords

Recommended Posts

Hi I was wondering what the safest way to saves a username and password on someones computer and only their computer is using input boxes. I was thinking making autoit check for a text file and if there is no text file it would run the input boxes then save them in a text file, but I know this isn't safe.

Any ideas?

There is no absolutely safe way, but hashing of the password is reasonably secure.

In this you generate a pseudo-random string that reperesents the password. Since it's pseudo-random and not actually random, the same password will always give the same hash. This is of course only useful for comparing a user's input with a password; it cannot supply the password, only check that the correct entry was made.
