Description

The algorithm for generating salted md5 hashes is used for encrypting passwords, for example for the PersistedUsernamePasswordProvider. However, this function is currently hidden in the security framework and not accessible through the public API. In some situations, for example when updating a password (and therefore the AccountFactory cannot be used), it would be handy to be able to use these functions.
