    Default Password help

    What is the best way to store and encrypt a password that is between 5 and 40 characters long and may include an ip address with the password preferably using php?

    For example, "This is a strange password111.34.222.2"

    After looking into my scripts and encrypting and salting passwords, I see that my password scripts are a little less secure than I thought, but still pretty secure.

    The passwords are encrypted and salted. Additionally, there are two methods in place to prevent brute force attacks.

    I will probably adjust my password scripts a little, but for the most part keep them as they are.
