MYSQL Password() Generator

This MYSQL password() generator can be used to convert a password string into an encrypted mysql password(). Unlike sha1 and md5 encryption, the password() function is explicitly used with mySQL. MYSQL Password() passwords are used in many php / mySQL applications and frameworks; such as Codeigniter. Typically, MYSQL Password() converts strings into a hexadecimal string.

MYSQL Password() password Security

Long passwords with special characters are the most secure since many online decrypters can translate basic MYSQL Password() strings, but fail at complex combinations. Regardless of the encrypted security, security really starts with 'Who can access your database?". Administrators often have access to encrypted login strings since they have complete access to the database. If they really wanted to; they could quickly replace your string with one of their own and login with a new password. Then, they could easily put your back; regardless of how well you encrypted you string.
