To make the hash, I use a DLL found on http://www.codenet.ru/db/vfp/vfp_md5.php (this site is Russian-speaking, I only understand the links ;-)
The link to download the file doesn't work, but I've sent the file to firstname.lastname@example.org
This DLL was made by Francisco Carlos Piragibe de Almeida
email@example.com based on MD5 algorithm and can be found on http://www.esquadro.com.br/md5bas.zip
The MD5 (Message-Digest Algorithm) is fully documented in RFC 1321 : http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1321.txt
Another hash algorithm is SHA : http://www.itl.nist.gov/fipspubs/fip180-1.htm

Currently FoxWeb does not support this feature, but we would be interested in adding it.
We would probably not allow users to use their own hashing algorithm, but we would include our own function in the software. Please provide us with additional information on the library you have. Is this free code? If not, can it be purchased?

I would like to store the hash value (e.g. using MD5) in the passfile.dbf instead of the real password, for security reasons.
I've a library to compute the hash, but is there a way to tell foxweb to use it during the authenticate process ?
