[David, Ushahidi] Hi Ush/ other programmers. All of you have been so helpful in the past... Presently, we've been hitting a wall regarding encryption and we would really appreciate if you could answer RJ's questions... :)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Hi David, RJ What issues are you seeing?

[Rj Quirit, Ushahidi] php MD5 encryption is not the same as your encryption
[David, Ushahidi] Thanks Jason for responding...
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Hi RJ, You don't need to encrypt the password when sending it to the API.
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] In production environment this should be handled by SSL/HTTPS
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Does this answer your question?
[Rj Quirit, Ushahidi] yes sir, when using the website... no need to encrypt...
[Rj Quirit, Ushahidi] but I was told to create a mobile platform
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] So that should be true on the mobile platform as well.
[Rj Quirit, Ushahidi] I need to match the mobile password encryption to the web platform
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] the resource that sends the password to the API should not encrypt the password.

[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] In the mobile platform sir, i have created my own api to communicate in the database
[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] I didn't use the api of ushahidi because i do not know how
[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] That is why i created our own api
[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] The database of ushahidi with table users has encrypted password sir
[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] Thank you very much sir
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] HTH
[RjQuirit, Ushahidi] Thank you. Thank you...
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] also, we are in the process of writing API docs but you should be able to get information about how the API works here:
