the hazards that I need to watch out for.
A couple of issues I was wondering about are the encryption used, how to
store(mysql, xml, etc), and how the session control works(how to I know its
the same user that has been logged from page to page).
I was thinking of simply uisng sha when I store the username and passwords
to store the hash(without storing the actual password). I was going to use
MySQL but was thinking maybe I could just use xml or a text file since it
doesn't need anything special. The MySQL might be more secure in this
respect though and its probably easier. I'm just worried about security
The session stuff I think can be taken care of with the sessions object?
I haven't programmed in php before but it seems pretty much just like C/C++
except for a few silly syntaxes. I'd rather program in asp because the tools
are very nice and sophisticated but php is much more cost efficient.
Trying to get a solid outline in my head so I can start programming. The
main thing I'm worried about is security for the login information. I figure
using a text file on the server in a private directory would do a good job
and I wouldn't have to worry about SQL injection attacks on it.
