It appears that state-of-the art salted-MD5 password verification is
possible with mysql's encrypt() function (for details, see
http://bugs.mysql.com/?id=784). Unfortunately, this doesn't work with the
plain windows version of mysql (Ver 4.0.13-nt for NT on i32). Cygwin users,
however have a /usr/lib/libcrypt.a and /usr/bin/crypt.exe - perhaps mysql
could use those?
Has anybody got something like this to work with mysql under windows?
Any hints how to do that would be highly appreciated.
