Password Security

A forum thread on Lowter (external link) a few weeks ago brought up the matter of password security. For most web developers, I think, the issue of password security is not the top on the list. Most of the time, password security is satisfied with a simple MD5 hash. Personally, I do not know much about password security other than a few articles I have read. Due to the forum thread, I have been trying to verse myself in the matter now. Take a look at the forum thread (external link) and this page on password security (external link) because they have some really useful information..
