    Staffing,

    Here's a great article on how to use hashed passwords in the web.config
    file:

    Its a lot safer to hash passwords. The only time you can't do it is if you
    need to be able to get the password clear text at one point or another, then
    you have to encrypt.

    So I have to write the Encryption / Decryption code ? Or is it a built in
    function in .NET. Where do I store the key ? Do I hard code that into the
    code ?. Should I just use a 3DES encryption ?

    Thanks
