I'm storing usernames and passwords, along with user contact and account information. The article I read mentioned sha512?

I would usually just use the MySQLi Log In User and Restrict Access to Page etc, but passwords are stored in database as plain text which is just awful.

I started digging online about what standard procedure is for storing passwords in a database and found an article about 'hashing' and 'salting' and basically saying that you really need to things that way to offer any kind of security should your database get hacked.

I'm not clear if SecurityAssist does either.
