Password hashing has long been a realm of mystery and a giant pain point for many developers who are not already experts in cryptography. Thankfully, some recent changes in the PHP language and recent open source contributions have made hashing headaches a thing of the past. In this talk we'll learn about some password hashing pitfalls, the tiniest bit of theory as to why secure hashing is important, and then we'll dig into some code that will have you hashing passwords securely in no time.
