Before you save a password to a database, it may make sense to encrypt it. That way when you do some user authentication, you can compare the users submitted password to the one on the database.
- #A. Import the SHA1 Method
- require "digest/sha1"
- #B. Encrypt the Password string
- @hash_pass = Digest::SHA1.hexdigest('super password')
- #C. Display the encrypted password
- puts @hash_pass
