comment Is using SHA-512 for storing passwords tolerable?
He didn't actually ask about upgrading from SHA-1 to SHA-2, so I'm not sure what point you're making here. He seems to understand pbkdf2/bcrypt/etc should be used, he just asks whether sha512+salt is okay enough to pass the audit.

comment Can someone steal money from my bank account if they know my IBAN and personal details?
And signatures are of course copy-proof because they vanish when you try to photocopy them... So yeah, they practically allow anyone to withdraw money.

"private data"? Definitely. Encrypt it? Now there's a question.
