"If you're a web developer, you've probably had to make a user account system. The most important aspect of a user account system is how user passwords are protected.

The best way to protect passwords is to employ salted password hashing. This page will explain how to do it properly.

Password hashing is one of those things that's so simple, but yet so many people get wrong. With this page, I hope to explain not only the correct way to do it, but why it should be done that way."
