Hi, I know that there is a way to encrypt passwords, but what would be the easiest? For example you have 2 functions in php. You use them by calling: fuction("data-to-be-encrypted-here"); But is there a similar way in ruby on rails?

You can use one of the Ruby digest package: http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/digest/rdoc/index.html For example, if you want to digest a password with SHA 512: require 'digest/sha2' Digest::SHA2.hexdigest('password', 512) Regards. Franco Catena.

Thanks. I looked at it, but could not understand it. I will use md5 because I also use it in my PHP-applications, and I can therefore use the same data without reset users passwords and so on. Can I do that and how?

Is the same thing: require 'digest' Digest::MD5.hexdigest('password') You need to know how to read an API, you must use it every day ... The "always open" are: http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/ and http://api.rubyonrails.org/ Expend a while figuring it out. Regards. Franco Catena.
