Hello All..

I am using Spring, Hibernate for developing my application..

And as DB side, I have mysql..

Now, My requirement is like, I have User table and that has password field with varchar type.

Now, When new user is created, i just wanna store password field in the Encrypted form...

Is there any facility provided by Hibernate to do so ? Or is there any other way to do so..

Thanks in advance..

The usual way to store passwords would be to hash them (using an algorithm like SHA-256), not to store them in encrypted form. That way no one can retrieve them.
