Yes.. I knew this and already read about RSA lib for TYPO3 while hack 
contest, but had no idea if it will be integrated in 4.3 (searched 
bugtracker and core list, but no RFC existed)..

I will try this extension.
Thanks for the great work!

Okay, I'd like to do some smaller tasks.


P.S: The idea to update the password directly at login is really great! I 
thought passwords will be salted only when user changes is password. Great 
idea ;-)
