Hello Team, In our project, generally we use {SAS003} which uses 16-bit in encrypting the password. Can we use the {SAS005} which is the 64-bit for the same in terms of more secure. Want to know which one is more secure in encrypting the password. Is it {SAS003} or {SAS005}. Thanks in Advance, Siddhu1

SAS005 uses a fixed key, a 64bit random salt, the SHA256 hash, and 10000 iterations to generate an encryption key for AES.

SAS003 uses a fixed key, a 16bit random salt, the SHA1 hash, and 1200 iterations to generate an encryption key for AES.

Due to the use of a longer salt, better hash algorithm, and is hashed for more iterations, SAS005 is more secure.

If you store the encrypted passwords in open code, these are easily open to reuse by other SAS users regardless of the encryption method.
