comment Protecting passphrases within an application
I agree with you. I wasn't trying to say any of those points was a solution. My opinion is to not worry about it or rethink what you are providing and how. The methods I shared you can use in an attempt to deter the average hacker. I need to rethink how share my thoughts. Thank you for the response :)

@polynomial - I didn't mean make your own algorithm (don't reinvent AES). I meant your own implementation of a standard in your code. That way you aren't referencing external libraries.

comment Is there more to password hashing?
@Ramhound - I am aware of this. "Other methods not relevant to this question will have to be taken". I wanted to keep this question related to the password hashing process. So my thoughts were ignoring other interventions such as a good password policy. I really should of worded that section better :)

comment Why are passwords limited to 16 characters?
I know a site that restricts passwords to [a-zA-Z]{1,5} It is a billing portal and it scares me :(

Typical scam. It takes you to a fake cnbc website with an article modified by your ip geo about someone who makes X dollars a month; all links go onto another website with a form asking for personal information. It will probably then try and get you to install some software. Unfortunately I didn't see anything special but I could of missed something. Take Terry Chia's advice.

@Paul - It could be. Who is in the files group? 755 is generally the ideal permission.
