I've been really bored lately and i want some programming to do! haha so i asked my mom if she wanted me to make her a program to keep track of her grades at school. She uses a gradebook and spends hours calculating final grades and such so i figured i'd make her life easier.
Okay so i've been writing everything down and all to get organized, i need to have everything together before i even put down a single line of code, ha.
One thing i encountered was this, i wanted to do a basic encryption on the grade files. I know no one is ever gonna try to mess with the files but i figured it would add an extra challenge and aspect to the program to keep me busy. I was thinking of using the hash of the user password (to get into the program) the only problem is that i would have to store this number somewhere and it would be easy for someone to get to it and decrypt the files using it.
So what should i do? I'm not looking for code right now just suggestions.
PS- Maybe a hash of the hash? i dunno.
