    Need to decrypt password stored in [password] field of Table -> [cmsMember]

    I am storing password in encrypted formate by setting passwordFormat="Encrypted"

     <add name="UmbracoMembershipProvider" type="umbraco.providers.members.UmbracoMembershipProvider" enablePasswordRetrieval="true" enablePasswordReset="false" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" defaultMemberTypeAlias="SiteMembers" passwordFormat="Encrypted" />


            <add name="UsersMembershipProvider" type="umbraco.providers.UsersMembershipProvider" enablePasswordRetrieval="true" enablePasswordReset="false" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" passwordFormat="Encrypted" />

    Now I need to store actual password into a string variable.

    please provide me way to store password in encrpted format and decrypt the actual value. Plesae provide me in details.

    Thanks in advance.

    HI the whole idea of an encrypted password is that you can't decrypt it. Why do you need the original password string?

    Cheers,

    We need decryption for password to prevent users from using last 3 password..any idea on how we can achieve this functionality??

    Thank You, Priyanka

    Then you need to store the passwords as plain text into the database but that is a security risk. Or use a default password that users must change when they first login?

    Cheers,

    We have to use enctyped password only by using passwordFormat = "Encrypted" in web.config.  I am able to store the value into password. But not able to decrypt this.
