(similar to standard hashes, The only problem, IIRC is that public key algorithms generally don't generate the same results on the same piece of text 2 times in a row.)
   That's deliberate - most PK algorithms add a salt value to the plaintext to avoid any weaknesses due to repeat-encryption. If you just do a plain PK encryption (RSA sounds like a good idea given the patent expires in about a month) then it is repeatable (for hash purposes) and decryptable given the secret key.

   If you would rather stick with something like PGP though, you could always encrypt the password when it is changed, but keep a hash of the password as well for verification.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
