[GSOC] PHPBB password storage mechanism

Post by balabky9 »

Hello guys,
I actually wanted to know to improve my GSOC proposal how does phpBB store its passwords.
If I am not wrong its a salt+md5 hashing right? And does phpBB support other types of hashing too? It would be great to get some docs.
The only database document which is available is for olympus, I dont know if things have changed in 3.2.x

On a side note is it a good idea to post your proposal link in the community?

Thanks a ton guys.

phpbb uses bcrypt if the server supports it.
