Reset Password using Security Assist 1

Thread began 2/21/2012 2:20 pm by Travis250923 | Last modified 2/27/2012 11:19 am by Travis250923 | 608 views | 4 replies


I wanted to just have a password reset where I generated a password and then e-mailed it to the user. However, since I am encrypting the password I am having trouble sending a random password to the user and then using that same password to be stored in the DB after encryption.

Well I think I have a workaround that will take a little extra time/effort. I'll implement a password reset that:

1) Requires the user to input a new password that I can encrypt and easily e-mail the decrypted password to them
2) Add a personal security question that they choose the answer for and require it for all new registrants/existing registrants
3) Add a generic validation question to help stop SPAM bots

Thoughts? Is there an easier way to do this?
