I strongly recommend doing the password check on the server. Although there is a possibility to use md5 and sha1 hash functions* (link).

* never store the passwords in plain text, better store its hash value somewhere and compare it with the hashed return of the supposed to be password from the input.

basicly it runs like that (I'm using PHP here)
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if ( hash(HASH_TYPE, $_POST['password']) == STORED_PW_HASH )
  2.   // I use 'ripemd256', at least use 'sha256'
  3.   // HASH_TYPE & STORED_PW_HASH may as well be class constants
  4. {
  5.     // do allowed things like setting $_SESSION etc.
  6. }

In my mysql database, I've stored all the passwords using the PASSWORD() function. Now I'm running a test and need to compare the password in my php document to that saved in the database.

I am storing encrypted password in registry and using it then to log on my application. However, my objConn.Open(str_connecton_string) crashes the application if I use the encrypted password.
