Only send certain fields

Is there anyway I can choose which fields i want sent in a posted form?
I currently have the fields user and pass and enc in a login form.
Enc is an encryption of pass.
I only want to send user and enc.

I have thought about just encrypting pass into the pass field when the user attempts to login, but i don't want to do it this way.

Is there any other option i can try?

You could always add a onSubmit event that will remove the pass field from your form before sending it.

onSubmit="mForm.pass.value = ''; return true;"

he's not encrypting his code, just the password that the user enters. :)

Depending on JS to do encryption is not a very good idea IMO.

If you need that much security, consider using SSL.

Otherwise, many serverside programming languages and databases provide ways to encrypt/decrypt passwords.

E.g. in PHP/MySQL:

$user = $_POST["username"];
$pass = $_POST["password"];

$q = "SELECT userid FROM users WHERE username='$user' AND password=MD5('$pass')";
if(mysql_num_rows( mysql_query($q) ) == 1)
  $login_status = TRUE;

Disable the fields before submission. I have demonstrated for 'get' but it works for post as well. (google is great for seeing what gets sent)

<form onSubmit="t3.disabled=true;t4.disabled=true; return true" action="http://google.com">
<input type="text" name="t1" >
<input type="text" name="t2">
<input type="text" name="t3">
<input type="text" name="t4">
<input type="submit"" value="submit">
<form>
