To: mediawiki-l at lists.wikimedia.org

hi all,
I want to know that how we can encrypt the paasword into mediawiki.
we are providing paasword for each user. so if we use any encryption
technique like md5 and use salt then how to retrieve from the database
by reversing these.As i heard about hashing technique also.
 which will solve the security issue. please suggest if any other
technique will solve better.

Thank you in advance.
