One simple approach (if you can speak of 'simple' in that area at all) is presented at http://www.codeproject.com/cpp/cmd5.asp ("CMD5: A C++ Message Digest 5 Class"). You'd use that like

cout >> "Enter password:";
cin >> strUserEnteredPassword;
CMD5 md5((const char*)strUserEnteredPassword));
if(strcmp(md5.getMD5Digest(),
  (const char*)m_PreviouslyStoredDigestOfTheActualPassword)==0)
{
    //password is valid
}
else
{  
    //user entered incorrect password
}

Hi Infinity

Sorry, but if i missed to answer anything. I changed my way to solve the problem, instead of using WSE now, i am using oracle to perform Base64 and SHA1.
