Is password hashed?
Posted on 2006-11-08
If I have all access turned off on a virtual directory except Windows Integrated Security, and I programatiacally connect to the directory over the internet using vb.net (HTTPWEBREQUEST/RESPONSE methods), will the password be hashed before it is sent over the network??? I know that typically it would be, but I am asking because I am doing this from a custom vb app. on a mobile device (running WinMobile5), not an ie browser on a pc.
It seems like it should get hashed somehow, but I'm wondering how it happens. Does the OS handle the hashing, or do I need to add something to my app?
