Storing Passwords Securely

Storing Passwords Securely.

Given the recent LinkedIn fumble I’m in agreement that it’s a great reminder to refresh our memories on proper security practices. I don’t claim to be any sort of security expert which is likely why I’m linking to articles on the topic all the time instead of writing them, but I do my best to glean the advice that’s out there and learn from the mistakes that get documented.

Unfortunately LinkedIn’s mistake is quite novice in it’s oversight but this article goes into depth about better practices when storing passwords.
