Thank you for the thoughtful reply!

You don't want to expose the salt to the client - but without salt hashing doesn't give better security.

Yes, I should have been more clear on this - I would take a hash of only the password on the client side, say SHA-512 multiple times, and additionally do the same hashing+salt on the server. That way, the cleartext password is never seen by the server, and provided the hash isn't in a rainbow table somewhere, it adds a tiny bit more security.

All of your points are excellent, and yes, I see that perhaps a per-IP delay or lockout on too many attempts might even be better than the current implementation (in Mojo: $c->tx->remote_address). Even though I agree logging is very important, did leave it out of this example... but luckily Mojo makes it fairly easy to add: app->log->warn("..."), app->log->error("...") and so on, and it can be redirected into a database as well via the event mechanism built into Mojo::Log.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
