FlexAccount, a Simple Login System for Flex

Here’s a little project I’ve been working on, on and off, for some time: A login system for simple Flex-based applications with a PHP back end.

It’s called FlexAccount, and there’s information and a download at that link.

I posted it yesterday and this article by Jeff Atwood made me think of calling it out today. One of my goals with FlexAccount was to create something that’s a reasonable representation of best practices, and that includes salting passwords in the database, using a unique, per-user salt.

If you start with FlexAccount, then you’re storing passwords correctly.
