Not sure if I posted in correct spot....
But seems to be topic of today...funny on same day I hear from Visa.

Windows based app.
encryped pwd = yes
SSL = yes,
hostssl, with explicit IP w/md5,. (no pg_crypto)

This is just with client / server pwd auth

We are in process of VISA CISP PCI compliance for our application.
(online cc auth - no stored cc data)
[next phase will include stored cc data]

We just heard back today that they would like to use SHA1 NOT md5 for
pwd auth.

does anyone have any doco that will support md5 vs. SHA1?
is PG_crypto in the db (meaning crypt the md5 hash )still the same as
md5 auth

We also have global customers so we understand the US v non-US export stuff.

Any direction is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
