|The application I am developing must login to a few third party websites on behalf of the end user. These are enterprise ASP.NET apps that were written in 2001 and probably never updated, its bad.|
I have to store the username/password for these systems somewhere within my applications database. Storing passwords in plain text scares the crap out of me. So HN what is the best way for me to balance security concerns here?
