The problem of cybersecurity is quite severe nowadays. Even large and well-known companies face the problem of sensitive user data leakage. It can be unauthorized access to databases, leaked logs, etc. Quite often, we encounter day 0 vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit. All this negatively affects the security of users themselves and the business’s reputation. In this article, I would like to explain how to implement storing user authentication data with password authentication.
