Secure Password Storage

Course Description

Developers have been storing passwords for ages. But did you know that the best practices from 10 years ago are hopelessly outdated? In this course, we look at commonly used but weak password storage mechanisms. Gradually, we work toward the current best practice for storing passwords. A real-life case study shows how to build a layered approach to storing passwords securely.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the weaknesses for password-based authentication systems
  • Analyze the security of an existing password storage mechanism
  • Implement a password storage mechanism using current best practices
  • Devise a strategy to upgrade an existing legacy and insecure password storage mechanism
