Joomla MD5 Hashes with Salt

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Hi, Im trying to upgrade someones e.com site, and have to migrate there users table data accross to SQL Server, does anyone know how to compare the Joomla password fields using .NET so far have not found the comparison - most examples do not include the salt, and none I have tried work, except for one application which authenticates from the Joomla DB structure, but Im not sure how to view the DLL source (JoomlaAuthenticationExample can't find the URL where I got this from, somewhere in the joomla forum).

the values in Joomla password fields are formatted as



b7352b63c5594547f50a52e4eb5fdc93:U3s8hmmi6Atd76nAD4TSq1WJ2zSg07Vd (Sorry posted the wrong row from the DB)

This should match "password"

Would appreciate some help

RijndaelManaged - Creating a secure yet retrievable Key, IV, and Salt?

I'm developing an ASP.NET application and for various reasons that are too lengthy to discuss here, using FormsAuthentication to handle login will not work. Therefore, I needed an alternate way to encrypt login data before storing it into a cookie (if the user decides to save their username and password for future visits to my site) and stumbled across RijndaelManaged. However, I need some information on how to securely generate a Key, an Initialization Vector, and a Salt. All of the examples on the web show code that either uses the default randomly-generated values in the RijndaelManaged object, which is an unrealistic solution since the RijndaelManaged object will be lost as soon as the method ends and I need to be able to decrypt the cookies days or even weeks later, or they hard code these values into the source code, which is insecure.
