  1. I'm curious to get opinions on using strip_tags() for fields that will be encrypted in a database. I often see websites that say "choose a password that contains X certain characters but not Z other characters." And I got curious. Let's say there's a registration form where a new user creates a username and password, and the server will store the password as ... sha1( $user_entered_value ) ... or some other sort of hashed/encrypted string. In this case, why would it ever matter that a user had entered <div> or some other such text in their password? The password will only ever be hashed into something before it is matched... so why would you bother stripping tags? Why bother preventing any "special" characters? Thoughts?
  2. Hi Guys I am fairly new to php, I am trying to build a registration form but I am struggling with encrypting the password (I will also be salting the password at a later stage to make it more secure). The below line of code encrypts the password but saves the values as the values states in the code e.g password saves as 'pass' $q = "INSERT INTO users (first_name,last_name,email,pass,registration_date) VALUES ('first_name','last_name','email', SHA1('pass'), NOW())"; The below code saves all the values that the user inputs xcept the password which is blank and the message 'Undefined index: SHA1('pass')' is returned $q = "INSERT INTO users (first_name,last_name,email,pass,registration_date) VALUES ('".$_POST["first_name"]."','".$_POST["last_name"]."','".$_POST["email"]."','".$_POST["SHA1('pass')"]."', NOW())"; I am hoping someone may be able to help me as I have no idea how to fix this. Thank you in advance
