    Smile Prevent re-use of prevously selected passwords

    Hi Friends,

    Have 2 queries and hence was wondering if you could answer them.

    1 A form must be designed to prevent users from reusing
    passwords that have been used in the last 12 months.

    2 Also, since the password is stored in a Oracle table
    as plain text, how can we encrypt it ?

    Thank You,

    Friend

    p.s. am using Developer 2000 (Forms 6i) as an interface.

    1. You could maintain a password history table to store older passwords for the users.
    2. There is a DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT available in Oracle 8i and 9i
