in reply to Security: balancing two conflicting password policies

Use a Crypt module to record the password (in a file or the source), I'd use Crypt::Blowfish for this myself, and then then uncrypt it before connecting to the SQL server. Another idea, you say you can't use PAR because of a source issue, does this exclude PP?

Update: Submited before adding PP info.
