thats great! u working on anything rn? @frostedbutton75

Im just kinda working on a little program... YourPersonalSafe but dont go on it yet because passwords are exposed and i need to find out how to hide them
@VulcanWM

OldWizard209 (1631)

You can hide them using replit's secrets? Did u try that? @frostedbutton75

VulcanWM (2903)

I dont think that'll work if the password is getting inputted in the website every time? @OldWizard209

OldWizard209 (1631)

Well, if another user is relying on frostedbutton's passwords, then it won't work. And about the secret getting inputted every time, I have no idea it will work or not lol. But technically it should because a secret is just a variable stored to the name of a key-value pair, but I am not entirely sure. Sorry. @VulcanWM

Yeah true, idk maybe some hashing and unhashing module? @OldWizard209

VulcanWM (2903)

but ig hashing and unhashing is pretty easy to hack then? maybe some database like mongodb or replitdb with hashing would work? @OldWizard209

OldWizard209 (1631)

Yep, that should work. But Python is a vulnerable language if you just hash it and keep it. A simple for loop can decrypt the password. I think best will be to use a SQL db or even replit's db, but that is also vulnerable. @VulcanWM

Lol I said the same thing and read this comment after. Yeah you are right. Db's are good for saving passwords but doesn't the hash cause issues when retrieveing it back? I tried it with MYSQL and I got a bunch of gibberish. @VulcanWM

VulcanWM (2903)

yeah hashing is good for one time passwords if you just want to match, idt python has some good hashing and unhashing function @OldWizard209

OldWizard209 (1631)

yep python isn't the best language for hashing out there. @VulcanWM

VulcanWM (2903)

maybe using a hashing api might work? @OldWizard209

OldWizard209 (1631)

That's something that could be done. Do you know any good ones? @VulcanWM

VulcanWM (2903)

nope, someone on Replit could make it? @OldWizard209
