I've never really understood encryption. In the case of a password, does that mean that what's stored in the database isn't the actual password itself? So when a user types their password into a password form field and submits it, a function converts that into the encrypted...what?....series of letter, numbers, characters etc and if it matches then they're in?
Can't the encryption be worked out, or is it a case of infinitesimal combinations that would take years to work out?
So should this just be applied to passwords or ALL user data in a database? Sounds like it should be the later.
I have Data Bride and Data Assist. How do I access these options?
