Result$ = DESFingerprint(Password$, Key$)Description
Returns a DES encrypted version of the given Password$.
Password$ The password to encrypt. It can be up to 8 characters long (all further characters are simply ignored). StringFingerprint() can be used to hash a bigger buffer. Key$ The Key$ is also known as the 'Salt' parameter, well know from Linux/Unix/BSD users. When using a 2 characters long Key$, this function returns a 'Salt2' string, compatible which any standard Linux hash password (/etc/passwd). This function is based on the open source crypt() function.
Returns the encrypted password.
This algorithm is based on the DES (Data Encryption Standard) crypt method to generates a 13 characters string. This string is mean to be unique and non-reversible implying a strong encryption, hardly crackable when the password is correctly chosen.
