Title: Cryptographically-Protected Passwords
Store and transmit only cryptographically-protected passwords.
All passwords must be cryptographically protected in a one-way function for storage and transmission. This type of protection changes passwords into another form, or a hashed password. A one-way transformation makes it impossible to turn the hashed password back into the original password.
You are responsible for managing passwords for your organization. You protect all passwords with a one-way transformation, or hashing, before storing or transmitting them.
